Why study BA (Hons) Criminology with Law at BU?
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.
