Course Introduction

Traditionally, criminology programmes are offered by social science departments and do not include related legal studies. Here at UEL however, the programme is taught within the School of Law and students acquire additional legal training on the more vocationally relevant aspects of this field. It provides both a strong theoretical grounding through a variety of criminology options, and also a comprehensive coverage of criminal law and criminal justice practice. This differs from similar programmes and should enhance the employability of our graduates. The programme is also available in part'time mode, with evening teaching available for those who work during the day.
