A Career in Criminal Justice in 2021

In recent years, as technology has developed and social divisions have been felt to deepen both at home and abroad, the field of criminal justice has become increasingly complex. With that complexity comes an increased demand for trained professionals with a strong understanding of the evolving nature of crime, the foundation of which can be built with a degree like the University of Bolton’s Crime and Criminal Justice BA.

The changing world of criminal justice
While the overall trend since the mid-90s has shown crime as a whole decreasing steadily year on year, recent research released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates that over 4.5 million cyber-crimes were committed between October 2017 and December 2018. The ONS has also released data saying that reported cyber-crime offenses have risen by 24% since 2019.

As the evolving complexity of cyber-crime continues to show no signs of slowing down, there will always be a need for graduates with a strong understanding of the issues.

If you wish to excel in a job in the criminal justice sector, you need a wide and up-to-date skillset. It’s for this reason we offer the Crime and Criminal Justice BA.
