Course Information

Why Law with Criminology

  • The aim of this course is to enable you to study the foundations of law while exploring the social aspects of crime, punishment and victimisation which makes it highly relevant if you wish to pursue a career in the field of criminal justice (for example, the police service, probation service, Crown Prosecution Service, prison service or other related fields).

How will you learn

You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions.

  • You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts.
  • You’ll be able to start focussing on the topics that interest you in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules.
  • The specialised Criminology and Legal modules will enable you to explore a diverse set of criminological issues, from Criminological Explanations, Administration of Justice, Human Rights and Contemporary and Comparative Criminology.
