Criminology should be an option for GCSE students as it teaches young people about criminal behaviour and how it can be managed. It is a highly interesting subject and will intrigue lots of students who either have an interest in this subject or would like to learn about it. It opens plenty of opportunities and may lead to future careers in the field.Criminology is currently just being taught in colleges however I believe that it should also be taught in high schools across the country. This subject is only slightly touched on in lessons such as religious studies however there is a lot more to this subject than what is taught. Crime is all around us, therefore studying criminology allows people to have a better understanding of criminals and their behaviour and can also make people feel safer. Most people rely on media and images to show them what’s going on in the world whilst criminologists understand. There is many different areas of crime such as murder, online, robbery, sexual assault, etc. People who are interested in criminology can and will make a lot of changes to the world.
