About the programme

This degree delivers up-to-the-minute knowledge from experts at the leading-edge of their fields. It introduces you to key criminal issues and shapes your understanding of the relationship between crime, society, politics, the media and criminal justice policy.

Get set to have your understanding of crime, deviance and the criminal justice process challenged and developed. This is achieved through the study of sociological and criminological explanations for crime, and by exploring the ways in which crime is controlled and regulated in modern societies.

Later in the programme, you’ll choose from an array of core and specialist option modules in criminology and sociology. These include modules that explore contemporary criminological theory, race and crime, policing and police work, penal institutions, human rights and cybercrime.

An optional work placement is available in fourth year, which will require you to attend a relevant work environment outside of the university.
