    Explore the nature and social impact of crime and investigate the subject from a critical and sociological perspective. You'll graduate with the skills and experience suitable for a wide range of careers in the policy, legal, criminal justice, academic and civil sectors. You could find a job as a youth worker, counsellor, police or probation officer or pursue a career in human rights, counter-terrorism or the intelligence services.

    Why study BA Criminology at Goldsmiths?

    • Issues of social inequality and justice are brought to the foreground in this degree. Youll learn how race, gender, class and nationality connect to crime and control, taking an international perspective to explore differences across the globe.
    • You'll be taught by researchers at the cutting edge of criminological and sociological research on urban crime, control and security, and globalisation and crime. And, as part of a tight-knit group of students, you'll benefit from the support and expertise of your teachers throughout your degree.
    • Modules such as Criminal Justice in Contextgive you the opportunity to meet and learn from leaders in criminal justice, policy and campaigning sectors, offering up to date knowledge.
    • Youll have access to a range of work placements and volunteer opportunities and well help you find an organisation that suits you. You mighttake part in training to support a victim of crime, attend court, or mentor young people.
    • You'll learn how to research. Being able to gather and analyse different types of information from a wide variety of sources is a vital skill in the digital age where there is a lot of information but a shortage of truth.
    • You'll be taught by experts in the social sciences, as well as those involved with and who have experience of criminal justice.
