**Work alongside the police and other criminal justice agencies, as well as our own academic experts, to gain an understanding of the complex nature of crime, its causes and consequences, and the search for solutions.**
We pioneered the teaching of this fascinating subject more than 30 years ago. Our close links with the police and other criminal justice agencies ensure that criminology at Hull remains up-to-date, practical and relevant.
- Compelling choice of modules thanks to our wide variety of staff specialisms which range from cyber crime and modern slavery to the history of crime and punishment.
- Experience real world criminal investigations â including the chance to witness suspect interviews and crime scene visits â on seminar-long placements with Humberside Police.
- Youâll also get the chance to work with offenders thanks to our links with the local ReNew service for people with drug and alcohol problems.
- Benefit from the exciting 'Learning Together' initiative which enables you to learn alongside prisoners at HMP Hull.
- 100% of our criminology graduates find work or further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education for the academic year 2016/17, published by HESA, 2018).
Studying criminology at Hull enables you to examine controversial issues related to crime and criminal justice in a friendly and supportive environment where we will help you develop your own interests as you study.
The foundation year is ideal if you don't have the academic qualifications for direct entry onto the degree.
