Criminology and Sociology (with Foundation Year)

BA(Hons) Criminology and Sociology (with Foundation Year) lets you devote an equal amount of time to studying these two related subjects. Through a broad mix of modules, and the support of our staff who are leaders in their field, you’ll engage with real issues, and develop fresh insights and solutions to address crime and support the people affected by it. Learn to evaluate evidence, approach issues from multiple perspectives, and build your expertise in research, analysis and communication. Carry out your own research projects, hear from guest speakers, and take part in work-based learning through our links with organisations such as the Bristol Youth Education Service, Gloucester Community Services and Avon and Somerset police. Activities such as volunteering, placements and internships will deepen your professional skills and knowledge further, to make you highly sought after when you graduate. You can also choose to spend a year studying at the Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, to add international experience to your degree. The broad skills and industry-focused experience you’ll gain will make you attractive to a wide range of employers. You could pursue a career in research, education, social work, charity work and counselling, or work in the justice, legal or media sectors. You could also keep studying, and go on to do a postgraduate course or research degree.
