Explore how societies are organised, and how people are united and divided. Within the context of modern forms of power, examine the nature of crime and criminality from a critical, sociological perspective. We live in a complex, global, mobile and technologically sophisticated world divided by inequality. How do we make sense of modern society, and how might we investigate crime and criminality? This degree is aimed at those who want to understand how modern societies are structured, but also for those with an interest in questions about crime and criminality. You will learn how to investigate how and why people do what they do and you will learn how social conduct is patterned and shaped. The degree looks at how societies have changed over time, and the formation of the types of global, technologically complex societies with which we are familiar today. It is in this context that you will think about modern forms of crime and criminality.
