Criminology tackles questions such as what is crime? How are laws enforced? Why is crime concentrated in particular areas? How do you judge and evaluate evidence? How can crime be prevented?
We offer single or joint honours awards in Criminology. Each of these provides you with a gradual development of criminological knowledge that progressively advances across the years.
