Criminology and Sociology - University of Hull

**Demand for insightful criminologists who are aware of crime’s impact on society is higher than ever. This course can train you to meet that demand.** Criminology and sociology are a logical and valuable mix of subjects. You'll explore the diverse social, cultural, economic and political factors which cause what we consider to be ‘crime’ in any one time and place. Crime happens in social contexts which sociology helps us to understand. But what makes this course stand apart from the rest? - We've got one of the best-established criminology departments in the UK. And we've been pioneering the academic study of crime for more than 30 years. - We have strong links with local, regional and national criminal justice agencies. So you'll be able to benefit from work placements and experience-enhancing site visits. - The diverse backgrounds of our teaching staff has produced a wide range of modules – you can tailor your degree to fit your interests. - We work with HMP Hull as part of the 'Learn Together' initiative, bringing prisoners and students together to learn. Through real-world examples, you'll explore societal responses to crime and look at the importance of crime’s impact on society. You'll consider your own attitudes towards crime, criminals and victims – as well as different social groups, cultures and social institutions. **Official Team GB partners** Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
