Program description

BA (Hons) Criminology and Law with Foundation Year

The BA (Hons) Criminology and Law with Foundation Year enables students to study two linked and well-established fields in social sciences. Students approach the subjects through both separate and interdisciplinary study and gain an understanding of the foundations of society and the social world which encompasses both social values and behaviours. The complex relationship with social policy is explored through analysis of legal concepts and decision making, ethics and social, psychological and political effect. The overall aim of the program is to instill a way of thinking and transferable skills which enable effective interdisciplinary analysis, synthesis and application of the two disciplines whether taken independently or together.

From January 2022, our undergraduate course fees are increasing. Be sure to take advantage of our current price by enrolling today.
