It combines politics, law, psychology, society and culture. You’ll investigate why certain people commit crimes, how our criminal justice system works, why some people abuse others, how victims of abuse cope with their experiences, why people from some backgrounds are reportedly more likely to commit crimes and become victims, how we can improve relations between young people and the police, and global crime problems and their impact. There are opportunities to volunteer at organisations working with offenders and victims of crime. You’ll engage in research that has real impact for practitioners, offenders and victims.
