Social Policy and Criminology (Hons) from University of Birmingham combines popular subjects that offer complementary insights into a range of social problems and social harms.
The Social Policy and Criminology degree will enable you to consider the ways that different societies produce contrasting levels of 'problems' and 'harms', such as drug and alcohol addiction, homicide, homelessness and workplace injury. You will be encouraged to consider the reasons why these are designated as being either 'crimes' or 'social policy' issues and therefore are dealt with through contrasting 'welfare' or 'criminal justice' responses.
