What will I learn?

In this History and Criminology degree you are encouraged to consider the ways in which histories of crime and the discipline of criminology overlap and influence each other.Criminologists engage with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today. When you study criminology, you explore the nature of crime, criminal justice and punishment within wider social contexts and study an exciting range of topics, from the impact of computer games on crime, to terrorism and illegal migration, to policing and controlling society.As a student of history, you also discover both the early modern and modern periods, and explore challenging questions concerning the impact of political, social and cultural change on individuals, social groups, and regions. This degree offers the flexibility to choose from a wide range of optional modules about subjects close to home and further afield.Our Department of History has developed a strong research and teaching profile. Our staff are amongst world leaders in their fields and we have strong links with the Essex Record Office, which is one of the best county record offices in the UK.
