Would medical sciences with criminology be a good degree to take?Watch
Some typical UG criminology essays might include the following types of topic:
Why are black males over-represented in the criminal justice system?
Should women be imprisoned?
Why are homeless people over-represented as perpetrators of crime?
Things like that (amongst other things). It has quite a significant overlap with sociology (I’ve studied both separately in the past - sometimes it was like I was studying the same thing again).
Job prospects I’m unsure really. I was already in a full time (somewhat unrelated) career. A website like Prospects might help you better.
It’s not a necessary subject for entry into careers like policing or other areas of the criminal justice system, although it obviously wouldn’t hurt. It’s a very interesting field but not necessarily a direct route into forensics.
