What we teach

Our degree courses cover a range of areas within the disciplines of law and criminology and are aimed at those wishing to enhance their knowledge of either subject for the purposes of furthering their passion or for those considering a career in a legal or a criminological field.

The time at Greenwich has flown by so quick but I know now that studying Criminology and Criminal Psychology was the right choice for me.

Why study at the School of Law and Criminology

We provide a vibrant study environment and a dedicated and approachable staff team deliver our courses. During their studies, students are encouraged to develop their knowledge, their skills and to interact with others and make the most of the resources and extra-curricular opportunities available.

I feel that the course as a whole has been very well put together. I especially thought that it was amazing to choose some of the subjects in the second and third year, as you can tailor your degree how you want it. Every year, I have enjoyed all the modules.
