This three year degree programme has been designed by practising criminologists to enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting-edge criminological and sociological concepts and theories, and to apply them to current socio-economic policies and conditions.
We’ve designed this course to deliver a high level of face-to-face tuition so that you can get plenty of support while you develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues. Some of the areas that you’ll get to focus on include urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, migration and marginalisation.
The diversity of the programme content on this course means that you’ll have an excellent grounding to enter a wide variety of fields after graduation. It is also a strong basis for further postgraduate study, should you wish to study further and specialise in one of the areas that you’ve learned about.
You can choose to take an additional Foundation Year before you start this course. This introductory year focuses on developing an understanding of the legal sector and the key skills required to undertake the three year degree. The Foundation Year involves studying six modules to develop the necessary skills and introduce students to key concepts to enable progression onto our three year degrees.
