What will I learn?

If you are interested in studying crime and society, then the BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology degree will give you a solid grounding in both disciplines. The course offers students the opportunity to study a wide range of sociological and criminological themes and topics across a broad sweep of modules, emphasising the value of empirical and theoretical approaches.  This is achieved by exploring the changing nature of the social world and of crime, and addresses the social, political, historical and individual forces behind such changes. The context for both subjects is local, national and global perspectives, looking at their similarities and differences.  There is strong emphasis on research methods which will give you the skills necessary to carry out independent research for your future career, including your dissertation in the fourth year. In the first and second years, you will follow a traditional broad approach to the study of sociology and criminology. In years three and four, you will examine in-depth particular areas of sociology and criminology, allowing you to study specific topics and themes which reflect staff research specialisms. Each year, you will build on your analytical and research abilities through the core research methods modules. The degree also offers the opportunity to study other Humanities subjects such as history, literature, archaeology, politics, and theology.
