Criminology and Sociology

This degree programme is an opportunity to study both Criminology and Sociology within an interdisciplinary social sciences context. Criminology is the field of study which focuses on criminalisation, victimisation, and social responses to crime and disorder. We draw on a range of social science perspectives and offer you the chance to explore sociological, psychological and political approaches to crime and its control. Sociology is dedicated to the study of social life as found in groups, institutions and societies. It provides the critical tools for handling the analysis of all aspects of social conduct, from face-to-face interactions to how economic forces shape and are shaped by global society. This course uses a wide range of approaches to help you learn the methods and ideas needed to make your own contribution to understanding and improving society.
