Professor Neil Chakraborti

Head of Department

Our courses have been designed to provide a comprehensive study of criminology. You will be taught by academics who are at the forefront of their field and we pride ourselves on our friendly and accessible approach to learning and teaching, as shown in our student feedback which is consistently high.

Our teaching is inspired by the findings from our cutting-edge research. Lecturing staff have a wide array of research interests, ranging from offending behaviour, sentencing and desistance to hate crime, domestic violence and forensic science. This research expertise feeds directly into our engaging teaching programmes, helping to shape course content and keeping you informed about current debates on crime and criminal justice.

We provide an exciting, inspirational and friendly atmosphere in which to study. You are encouraged to engage in current criminological debates and to air your ideas in group discussions and workshops. When you join us, you will become part of an active and vibrant group of people who are learning about and contributing to debates on all aspects of crime, justice and deviance.
