Criminology and Sociology - Manchester Metropolitan University

The BA Criminology and Sociology offers the exciting opportunity to combine the study of two cutting-edge disciplines in the vibrant city of Manchester. The course is aimed at students who are interested in both disciplines and want to study the causes, patterns, consequences and responses to crime by situating them in the wider context of society. The first year introduces students to the building blocks of criminology and sociology: key sociological and criminological theories, social divisions and problems, the criminal justice system, crime policy and practice, and key social transformations such as digital culture. Students will receive training in a wide range of research methods during the first two years and be equipped to undertake their own independent research project in the final year. Our large, multi-disciplinary department believes in offering students extensive optionality to study specific areas of both sociology and criminology in depth. Throughout the degree, there is an emphasis on developing skills and experiences that are relevant to professional careers, including work experience, study-abroad schemes, and independent project work. If students wish, they can study a foreign language as part of their degree. In the final year students have the option of moving onto the BSc route, which means receiving extensive quantitative methods training and graduating with a BSc title.
