Sociology and Criminology BA Honours.
Immigration, human traf?cking, social injustice and youth unemployment make headline news almost daily. These are the key issues of our time. If you’re interested in such issues, and want to understand why migration may be linked to global inequalities, or the role of social media in protest movements, then you should consider studying sociology and criminology. Combined, these two disciplines develop your sociological and criminological imagination and answer questions about society and its various institutions.
With its unique position in central London our University gives you access to invaluable resources for your academic work. The Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey and the BBC are some of the resources our students use. Enrolling on the course, you can also gain valuable experience studying abroad for a semester and be part of an international student culture. The programme is led by specialists in their fields, whose interests include human rights, migration, gender, ethnicity, social activism, media, psychology, theory and methodology.
