Criminology is a bit of a waste of time as a degree - its just a Sociology degree with a few different modules. It might sound glamorous but it wont make you a 'Criminologist' - for that you'll need a Masters degree in Psychology, a PhD and some serious academic reasearch experience. If you are interested in this area, then look at the content of Sociology or Social Policy degrees - most include optional modules on Social Deviance, Criminal Justice, Crime and Disorder etc. A degree in Sociology is much more 'useable' as its much wider than just Criminology. If you look at the modules list for this degree at Birmingham, you'll see what I mean = https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergr...sociology.aspx

The modules for criminology are different at every university, for example at Exeter you can do toxicology and anthropology which I find very enticing. However, I do see what u mean by it’s basically a sociology degree with a few differences thats why I had to do ALOTTTTT of research into the unis I picked, the only one thats similar to sociology for me is york and its only an insurance! Also I do plan to switch to criminology and psychology if i do end up going to Southampton, some of the modules I like are more psychology based. Career wise I kind of want to be a csi (crime scene investigator) or a teacher who teaches criminology hence why i applied for criminology.

Because thats what you need to do crime scene work - not a degree in Criminology.

If you are going to spend £65k+ on 'going to University', then it helps to be realistic about the degree you are thinking of doing - ie. if it isnt actually going to help you get into the career you are aiming at, is it the best choice.

notice how you kept saying “if you” “help you” if its about me dont get involved if people wanna pick criminology let them pick it. As i said again this thread was only for people who have already applied for criminology and the universities they applied for.
