Criminology BSc(Hons): After you graduate

Careers and progression

Criminology BSc(Hons) graduates have gone on to work in diverse fields, entering a range of careers:

  • Criminal justice and advocacy organisations
  • The Metropolitan Police
  • National Offender Management Service
  • Youth offending teams
  • The Prison Reform Trust
  • Crime research
  • Health, housing and welfare
  • Human resources
  • Teaching
  • Local and central government

The Criminology BSc(Hons) prepares students for life after university by teaching key transferrable skills that employers want:

  • Problem-solving and analytic skills
  • Critical thinking and reasoning
  • Team working, project planning and leadership
  • Self-motivation and working independently
  • Managing and interpreting data sets
  • Written and oral communication, including public speaking

In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
