Our streaming platforms are filled with 'true crime' and docuseries; fascinations around crime, criminality, and harm in the fictional space - many that are portrayals of real global cases. 

Come and find out how we can relate these to academic studies.


What is "Criminology"? 

What career opportunities can studying this subject open the door to? 

Come and hear about how we dissect, analyse and research all things crime and vulnerability. What are the future directions in Criminology, and what are the opportunities they can bring you during, and beyond, your degree? 

Come along and hear from both staff and graduates on typical career paths, while also engaging with some of the fascinating topics that sit within Criminology. 



Together, we will debunk myths and realities about what we mean by crime and harm in different areas of the social world: the custody suite, digital platforms, and the sex industry. Understand the role that the media may play in the representation of these spaces.
