Do you want to make sense of the rapidly changing society in which we live and the freedom with which information, money, goods and services now move across national boundaries? Would you like to understand the effects of this globalisation on modern Britain?
Are you interested in how deviance in social circumstances can lead to crime? Are you fascinated by social justice, human rights and the workings of the criminal justice system?
On this course, you’ll study these issues in the vibrant, multicultural setting of east London. You’ll graduate with a degree that has vocational relevance, while putting no limit on your career options.
If you want to be a probation officer, for example, you need to know about criminology. This course is an exciting way of preparing for a career while studying the wider questions that sociology addresses and the impact it has on our daily lives.
First, we need to know the country where you finished school or are currently studying in!

A sociology degree from UEL will prepare you for a wide range of jobs such as teaching, journalism and social work. Add criminology to your qualification and you’ll be able to specialise, should you wish, with a career in the police force, the probation service, pressure groups or central and local government.
UEL has strong links with criminal justice organisations who work with us both in and out of the classroom. You’ll benefit from these links as they can help you choose your career after you graduate.
You may wish to become a prison officer, a community development worker, a probation officer or a youth worker.
This degree will also give you the skills to move into a career as an adult guidance worker, a housing management officer or manager or a social researcher, or it could set you on the road to becoming a solicitor.
Alternatively, you may decide you want to continue your fascinating discovery of the social issues that affect us all by staying on at UEL and helping to shape the local community on one of our postgraduate courses.
