Program Description

On our BA (Hons) Criminology degree, you’ll consider crime, victimisation and criminal justice processes from a range of multidisciplinary academic perspectives, such as sociology, psychology, politics and the law. The degree will give you the opportunity to challenge your existing opinions and attempt to evaluate contrasting evidence around the causes of crime, think critically about the effectiveness of punishment and craft arguments about the representation of crime and victimization.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250/year
