Professional body membership boost for Criminology students

Date 26.03.2020

Students studying Criminology at the University of Northampton now have the added benefit of becoming member of the British Society of Criminology, for the duration of their studies at Northampton.

The British Society of Criminology, the professional body which oversees those working to scientifically study crime and criminal behaviour, in order to predict, deter, and prevent further criminal behaviour, membership gives University of Northampton students unrivalled access to resources, regular thought leader bulletins, events, networking and access to the best graduate jobs.

Senior Lecturer in Criminology Paula Bowles, said: “I’m delighted to be able to offer students this opportunity. Making connections and building a network of peers and experts is one of the biggest benefits of being a member of a professional body, this membership means University of Northampton students will be exposed to experts working in the field alongside their studies, which will be an invaluable resource to use for their academic assignments to broaden their learning. It will also give them the opportunity to network with like-minded students and experienced professionals through special interest groups, regional branch and student-focused services.”
