Summary

Designed to develop an advanced critical understanding of crime in its social context, this programme draws on insights from across the humanities and social sciences.

This course incorporates sociology, law, psychology, geography, history, and cultural and media studies. It reflects the nature of criminology as a fast-developing, interdisciplinary subject concerned with understanding crime in its local, regional, national and international contexts.

This course offers you the opportunity to study criminology in a social scientific environment with teaching by experts in criminology, sociology, social work and social and public policy.

You will gain practical experience with a local crime or criminal justice organisation (such as the police or a member agency of a local crime and drugs partnership), offering you the opportunity to apply and reflect on what you have learned in the classroom.

You will be able to choose from a range of optional modules in criminology and related fields. You will also develop skills in a range of research methods, and your dissertation will enable you to put them into practice by carrying out and writing up an extended piece of criminological research.
