Criminology the scientific study of the nature, extent, management, causes, control, consequences, and prevention of criminal behavior, both on the individual and social levels. Criminology is an interdisciplinary field in the behavioral sciences, drawing especially upon the research of sociologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social anthropologists, as well as scholars of law.
Employers value experience, and a range of paid and voluntary work opportunities exist, including work with offenders, criminal justice agencies and victims of crime. Social work and community education departments also offer relevant opportunities. Specific roles include prison visiting, working as a special constable, and involvement in drug treatment schemes, victim support or youth/bail hostels for young offenders.
