Criminology & Criminal Justice Studies

Organization profile

Organisation profile

Criminology tackles questions such as what is crime? How are laws enforced? Why is crime concentrated in particular areas? The reputation of our Faculty of Business and Law is impressive. Students within the Faculty benefit from academic staff who have commercial and academic industry experience, alongside local knowledge and a global outlook.

For example, the Institute for Public Safety, Crime and Justice (IPSCJ), a joint venture between the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire and the University of Northampton, which seeks to bring together academic research and evidence with practice, training and development across agencies.
