Criminology BA (Hons)
In criminology we look at how various factors about a person or group of people might affect how they function in society. I think I can take this skill and understand how to best lead a team of, presumably, very different people and have them run successful operations. This term we had a module called ‘Working with Criminology’ and its highlighted some different career paths that could be open to me after I graduate. It’s also opened my eyes to the world of further academic study and I will probably consider doing a masters at some point in the future.
