About

Criminology (with Foundation Year) (Hons) at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) teaches you about crime and the criminal justice system, drawing on sociology, law, psychology and philosophy, and applying theories, knowledge and research to real, contemporary issues.

Exploring these issues from different angles is an essential part of discovering more effective deterrents and better forms of rehabilitation.
