Program Description

Combining two exciting and complementary disciplines, this fascinating degree explores social issues and problems, with a particular emphasis on crime, victimisation, justice and punishment. You will examine debates on these criminological areas in socio-economic and political contexts at the local, national and transnational levels of society.

This means you will study how crime relates to key sociological issues such as inequality, marginality, identity, power and control. You will also consider the individual motivations underlying criminal behaviour in order to gain an understanding of the causes and consequences of crime as well as the response to the crime – in the form of policies and legislation around policing, crime prevention, sentencing and punishment.

Our course has been designed by experienced current teaching staff including qualified educationalists and former criminal justice practitioners, active researchers and experts in areas such as race, gender, media, sexuality and class.

We have excellent links with local organisations and employers, many of whom provide work placements. Such links currently include the Citizens Advice Bureau and local Council.
