    Hi guys!

    So recently ive been considering a career in mental health work, mainly with criminals within the mental health system.

    I am currently studying a single honours undergrad in Criminology. Is it possible to get into a mental health job with criminology? and if so what route could I take? (E.g. masters, work placement)

    Also any other advice for careers involving a criminology degree?

    Please don't comment informing me that ill never actually get a job with a criminology degree, thank you!

    U could become a forensic social worker they deal with people in the criminal justice system who have mental health. Google this actually quite interesting and an alternative to the obvious areas of social work. Also not all universities specialise in this area but middlesex university do. Hope this helps good luck with your studies.
