Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Criminology.
Criminology courses have been taught at Swansea since the 1990’s: the MA in Applied Criminal Justice & Criminology was established in 1997, followed by the Undergraduate programme in 2002.
Our teaching programme is delivered by a dedicated and experienced team of academic staff and postgraduate teaching assistants, many of whom studied Criminology at Swansea.
Criminology covers every aspect of crime and how society understands and responds to it. Our degree programmes are designed to develop and inform your understanding of this major social issue. They will enable you to look beyond popular conceptions and prepare you for a career in one of the many agencies that deal with crime and criminal justice.
