Program description

French and Criminology and Criminal Justice

You can study French as a joint honours degree with Criminology and Criminal Justice (50% French and 50% Criminology and Criminal Justice). Please read the course description for both subjects.

French

The BA (Hons) in French will give you advanced skills in the French language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. Doing single honours will also allow you to follow a full range of options, which will equip you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and life of the modern French nation, and awareness of the wider Francophone world, at a level which will allow you to consider postgraduate study.

Criminology and Criminal Justice

This course provides you with the opportunity to study two main subject areas; Criminology and Criminal Justice. Criminology examines theories and evidence relating to crime, criminals and victims, while Criminal Justice studies explore the various responses to crime and victims, from informal to formal legislative measures of social control and crime prevention; and examine the way in which the criminal justice system works - from policing through to imprisonment.
