The ability to combine two academic disciplines is also a great way of not only improving but broadening your knowledge base and opening up opportunities for a wide range of career options.
You will study a mix of criminology and sociology modules throughout the course. Each year of study you will be required to evenly split your module choices between the two disciplines.
The Criminology and Criminal Justice and Sociology (Hons) degree at University of South Wales gives you a solid foundation for professional training in social work, probation, youth justice, youth and community work and research. Other popular career routes include the police, prison service and other criminal justice agencies, as well as protection and victim support services. This degree has direct relevance for graduates seeking entry into new careers in areas such as intelligence analysis and crime reduction officers.
The ability to master two academic subjects demonstrates a high level of organisational skill and enables you to enter a variety of rewarding careers. Besides gaining knowledge of two complementary subjects, you will develop key skills that employers value such as evaluating evidence and making conclusions, writing reports, the application of IT and the confidence to present logical reasoned arguments. Many of our graduates are also seen as attractive employment options because of their critical and independent thinking, analytical skills and knowledge of today’s society.
