What will I learn?

The Sociology and Criminology team at Coventry are committed to your academic and personal development. Student support is one of our top priorities and you’ll be joining a lively, welcoming and friendly community. We will encourage you to challenge some of the typical preconceptions about the nature of crime and disorder; about who commits crime, the harm it entails and how it is punished. In doing so, you should develop strong analytical abilities, enabling you to cast a perceptive and critical eye on the world and convey your ideas and views effectively - skills which are beneficial in any number of careers.As you progress in your studies, you will have the opportunity to develop an appreciation of the real-life experience of social policy which is embedded in the course through a range of events and conferences, with academics, practitioners and policy maker, which in the past have often featured national and international politicians.For example, in the past, students have attended the British Sociological Association Annual Conference and the Coventry University ‘Sociology Speaking Seminar Series’ and engaged in debate about issues, policy and laws concerning areas such as social justice, media, immigration and current political affairs.As part of our commitment to provide practical, real-life experience relevant to future careers, you’ll have opportunities to work in diverse situations on short and long-term placements.You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in exciting field trips; students have previously visited Berlin to explore Post War Germany, Memorialisation, Sicily to examine Anti-Mafia Organisations, and Gothenburg to research migration, urban development, music and food culture. **Key Course Benefits*** Excellent professional links with local and national employers.* Choice of optional modules allowing you to tailor your degree to suit your interests in Sociology and Criminology.* Opportunities to expand international experience by participating in exciting field trips, studying or working abroad.* The opportunity to develop skills employers look for, such as working to deadline, presentation, verbal and written communication, analysis, critical thinking and report writing.* Expert guest lecturers who have, in the past, covered topics ranging from Islamic Relief, Think Ahead (social work programme), Citizens Advice Bureau (subject to availability).
