Program description

Criminology and Sociology BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Explore the social challenges of crime and its effects on the lives of victims and perpetrators. This joint undergraduate honours degree allows you to look in-depth at how issues surrounding class, gender, race and social policy influence criminal activity and victim support.

Our Criminology and Sociology BSc (Hons) degree will equip you with the tools and understanding to analyse crime in a social context and support individuals affected by it.

During the course you’ll explore the relationship between crime, race, gender, wealth and society, while building the skills you’ll need to undertake effective social and criminological research. In our teaching we’ll employ contemporary case studies that will make you aware of the latest challenges faced by society and the innovative ways to deal with them.

This course is unique among other criminology programs in the UK owing to its focus on youth crime and sociology. You’ll look at issues that influence violence and crime amongst the youth, including consumerism, music, technology and sub-cultures.
