Overview

We use a range of disciplinary approaches to help you develop your knowledge in contemporary sociological theory and practice, as well as a thorough understanding of the various approaches for responding to and explaining crime.

The programme

By combining both disciplines, you’ll develop a good grounding in criminology and sociology that keeps your options open for a wide range of careers. At the same time, you’ll have the flexibility to focus more closely on the issues that suit you and your career aspirations, such as crime, deviance and social control.

Professional experience is crucial, so you’ll complete professional work placements as part of your degree. We’ll work with you to match you with one of our employer partners, or we’ll support you in finding your own placement. You could also spend a semester at one of our international partner institutions through our Study Abroad programme.
