Since its inauguration in 1987 the Department of Criminology has established itself as a thriving and internationally-renowned department. Leicester is one of the very few universities in the country to have its own department exclusively dedicated to researching and teaching criminology, and our students benefit from learning in an environment that is home to some of the UK’s leading criminologists. The Department is a first point of contact for journalists needing information and advice on crime issues and it is regularly called on by national and local governments to assist with policy development.
The Department was ranked amonst the Top Ten by The Guardian.
