Do you want to make a real difference to young people’s lives? And to the society we live in? Studying Criminology and Education Studies at Oxford Brookes prepares you for a career where you’ll change children’s lives.

You’ll explore some of the most topical issues facing children and youth today. And you’ll learn how young people learn and develop – physically, cognitively and emotionally.

You’ll also specialise in Criminology – becoming an expert on the issues and systems that can affect troubled young people. You’ll examine policing, drugs, criminal justice and digital crime. And you’ll explore how gender, race and class can create unique forms of discrimination.

You’ll graduate prepared for a career working with youth – whether that’s working with young offenders, in education services or within the juvenile justice system.
