Criminology (Including Placement Year)

Not only are we are ranked among the top 10 universities for Criminology in the UK according to the Times Good University Guide (2017), our Department of Sociology (in which this course is based) is ranked among the top 50 departments on the planet according to the QS World Rankings (2017) . Criminology demands critical engagement with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today. Adopting a criminological imagination will inspire you to see the world in a completely different way. You critique ideas and concepts of justice, punishment and social control. We teach in interesting and innovative ways with an exciting choice of modules ranging from the impact of computer games on crime, to terrorism and illegal migration, to policing and controlling society. On this four year version of this course you can spend your third year on a placement with an external organisation. Through our Q-Step Affiliate Status, we offer you the opportunity to develop your quantitative skills by taking a specialised degree pathway or receiving a student bursary to go on a quantitative work placement. Q-Step is funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
