Overview

Only students providing valid contact details (E-mail and phone number) will be contacted by the university regarding their requests.

Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting edge criminological and sociological theorising and will be able to apply this to current socio-economic policies and conditions. In order to achieve this, students will develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues such as urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, marginalisation and migration. 

Criminology and Sociology will be considered from a fresh perspective using feminist, critical, cultural, and race critiques to revisit societal issues. 

The programme

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. This year focuses on developing the key skills required to undertake degree level study, both academic and legal/professional related learning. The subsequent three years then follow our full-time BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology course.
