Criminological study at Solent starts with our programme of lectures and guest speakers. Past students have benefitted from talks delivered by criminal justice professionals and psychology practitioners, giving detailed insight into the industry and the careers it offers.

Previous years have seen students embark on a range of national and international study trips. These trips enabled students to visit local criminal justice facilities including the Old Bailey and the Houses of Parliament, as well as international sites of interest like the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security, USA.

This programme also encourages students to develop a range of transferable interpersonal and verbal communication skills through presentations, role-plays, debates, interviews and group work. These competencies are valued in a wide range of industries. 

Solent University’s criminology degree can help you to better understand the experience of crime victims, media representations of social problems and the effect of modern communications technology on the processes of law. This knowledge will position you well to pursue either further study or graduate employment.
