The Sociology with Criminology Honours degree was one of the first in the world and our department continues to produce internationally revered research from within our Crime and Conflict Research Centre, which will inform your studies.
Crime and criminal justice are central issues in modern society and our specialist degree enables you to understand them from a sociological perspective. You will explore the use of sociological and criminological thinking on everyday life events, beginning with the principal founders of the discipline: Marx, Weber, and Durkheim.
The specialist criminology modules allow you to examine areas such as crime and criminality; and media, crime and cultural practices.
This professionally oriented degree is an excellent basis for a wide variety of graduate-level careers in the civil service, the criminal justice system, policing, the protective agencies, youth justice system, social services, community safety, crime prevention, think tanks, and civil liberties pressure groups.It also prepares you for a broader set of career choices and further postgraduate study and research in criminology, criminal law, criminal justice studies, and related fields.
Sociology has a high and well established profile within higher education and offers a wider range of post-graduation employment prospects than many other academic disciplines. Career destinations include research, liaison and other positions in the public sector at local and national levels, in voluntary organisations and in the private sector.
