Sociology and Criminology together provide analysis and understanding of a continually evolving world and issues relating to crime, deviance and its management in the context of changing demographics, globalisation, and migration. Sociology seeks to gain a clearer understanding of society and social processes to address the problems of late modern societies and criminology adds a distinctive flavour to our understanding of crime, deviancy, criminal behaviour and the processes of criminalisation in those societies. As well as being taught by academic experts, specialist guest speakers and field trips will help to round out your second-to-none educational experience. Praised for its flexibility, the course allows you to complete either a 30-week placement in your third year, or a 20-day placement in your second or final year – crucial for enhancing your employability. Plus, in year four you’ll get the chance to develop your own piece of research based on a topic that interests you, or perhaps aligns itself with your future career or study plans, in the form of a final year dissertation.
