Program description

Youth Justice BA (Hons) (Full-time)

On this degree you'll learn about criminological theory and the workings of the criminal justice system. You'll also gain practical work experience, ensuring you meet the requirements for entering the youth offending sector on graduation.

Our course is taught by practitioners and academics with a wide range of policing and criminal justice experience. They'll guide you through your development and provide you with the best opportunity to achieve your career aspirations.

Increasingly youth offending is being addressed by community interventions rather than prison sentences. Our course offers you a unique opportunity to enter the youth offending sector at this vital time to help change the lives of young people.

The course is delivered by academics whose research addresses some of the most critical issues within the criminal justice sector today. They’ll be perfectly placed to enrich your learning experience and provide career insight, as they’ve worked with some of the highest performing youth offending teams in the capital.
