            Student Views

            I love how Criminology makes you question everything around you. It opens your mind to new ideas, concepts and theories which challenge the very foundations of previously held beliefs. It also ignites a passion for obtaining justice and bettering our current criminal justice system. The relevance of the subject within the rhetoric of the political climate highlights the role of criminologists and the reality of the impact that these individuals can make to society.

            Jenaya Smith

            What do I love about Criminology? Well, I really do love it! It is amazing! The modules we are studying are great. Everything we study is so intriguing. At times it makes me puzzled because there are so many things and I just keep questioning what the correct ones are. However – and this is the biggest thrill about the course – it makes me keep reading and thinking, just to find the correct ones for myself. Moreover, there are the lecturers who are just so enthusiastic about what they are doing and I believe they succeed in passing this enthusiasm to us.
