Does crime shape our legal system or does the law dictate our social reaction to crime? This new course examines the nature of crime, its causes and the legal responses to it.
Enrich your learning of criminology by studying law as a complementary subject
Investigate law-breaking and the construction of legal systems, criminal law and legal evidence, along with the often-emotive issues surrounding crime, punishment and justice
Studying criminology gives you a deep understanding of crime which complements and contextualises legal study – useful for those looking to work in the criminal justice system and other related services
Learn from research-active social scientists in fields including society and social formation, social anthropology, criminology, cultural diversity and social welfare
Choose from either a 30-week ‘sandwich’ placement or a shorter four-week placement to provide you with important work experience
Develop your own piece of research based on a topic that interests you, or aligns itself with your future career or study plans, in your final year dissertation.
