Criminology and International Relations

**Why choose this course?** In the 21st century it's easier than ever for people and goods to cross borders, but it's also easier for criminals and contraband to make the same movements. Although both our economies and daily lives depend on the ability of people and goods to circulate around the world at speed, these processes are also accompanied by division, inequality and conflict. This criminology and international relations degree investigates today's contemporary, globalised world and the challenges it presents to order, social justice and human rights. The combination of both perspectives enables you to explore ways in which the local and the global intersect on an daily level. You'll gain a thorough understanding of the theoretical foundations of criminology and international relations, in research methods and ethics, and academic writing and communication. In the final year you can take an applied criminology placement for credit, and you'll be encouraged to volunteer in organisations aligned to the course, like victim support helplines, advocacy groups, justice campaign organisations, international charities and NGOs.
