Criminology and sociology are a logical – and valuable – combination of subjects. Crime happens in social contexts. Sociology helps us understand those contexts. Demand for criminologists with insight into crime’s impact on society is higher than ever.
This course can train you to meet that demand. Through real-world examples, you'll explore crime’s effect on society and how society responds to crime.
You'll consider your own attitudes to crime, criminals and victims. And you’ll study topics like the relationship between the individual and society, the concept of deviance and how offenders are punished.
You'll also get the chance to work with real offenders through the Learning Together network† - which allows students and prisoners to learn alongside, and from each other.
Put what you learn into practice in our purpose-built replica crime scene facility right here on campus. A recent addition to the university, it provides detailed and realistic crime scenes for you to explore. Get hands on: collect evidence, explore criminal activity and see the world of forensic science brought to life.
