Sociology and Criminology - University of Warwick

Drawing on established strengths within our Sociology Department, you will explore a variety of areas: culture and ethnic identities, geo-political conflict, gender, environmentalism, social movements, sexuality, social theory, state crime, terrorism and modern society, punishment and community justice, youth crime, youth justice, policing, and issues of security in a global context. Criminology asks the key questions: Why do people commit crime? Can crime be prevented? How should we respond to crime? Is the criminal justice system just? Sociology asks similar questions in relation to the social conditions in which crime and justice take place. In this programme, we will look at the social structures highlighted by the implementation of the criminal justice system and invite you to imagine possibilities of societies without prisons and punishment. You will search for answers to these questions and challenges by examining the police, the courts, prisons and society as a whole.
