Is a Criminology degree worth it?
When you tell people you are studying criminology, their first thought is you are investigating crimes, murders, etc. but this is not the case. Criminology is more than that - it is about the foundations that underpin society.
You look at the societal causes for crime and explore a broader scope of issues, for example, why inequalities such as poverty and lack of opportunity can be linked to criminal behaviour, or why more men are victims or violent crimes whereas women are more likely to be a victim of domestic violence. I want to join the police, but Criminology opens the door to a wide variety of career pathways.
