The BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year from The University of Law is aimed at students who may not be served by the current sociology/criminology degree courses in research-led universities. 

The first year is a Foundation Year, which students study alongside our LLB (Law) students and is taught by our law tutors.
