Course Information

Delivering the most up-to-date theory and practice, Criminology and Sociology reflects both national and international developments in these ever-changing fields. It gives you the critical-thinking skills and intellectual confidence to develop your own position on such important issues as individual and social responsibility, crime and punishment, and global social dilemmas.

In the first year, you learn the foundations of both subjects as well as core skills in social sciences and research. Your second and third years build on this foundation while providing you with opportunities to explore special interests through optional units such as the politics of migration; youth and crime; and crime and the media. The final year also includes an independent research project of your choice.
