Visit the official programme website for more information


An appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future. Through the History strand of your degree, you will learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches to history and the range of skills and methods used in its pursuit. Criminology draws on insights and methods from disciplines such as law, social sciences, and psychology – as well as history – to explore crime, crime control and justice from a range of perspectives. You will learn about the nature and causes of crime and offending and also explore the methods used to collect and analyse criminological data.  

During the third year of your studies you will have the opportunity to choose a work placement module. This will enable you to gain skills specific to your subject of choice as well as the employability skills required for real-life work.
