Course summary

About this course
How do social differences like ethnicity, class, gender, age and ability make a difference to the way we are perceived and treated by the Criminal Justice System? On this course you’ll explore and critically assess the way society perceives, defines and manages crime - and graduate fully prepared for a career in public or community based services. This rapidly growing area of study changes as new criminological and sociological issues arise - and our close links with industry together with current research means our curriculum keeps up and reflects this. You will explore both the nature of crime and of modern society through a wide range of modules. You will learn about social differences, for example, based upon gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, class and age. You will also look at social and legal perceptions of and responses to crime, criminality and victimisation. The methods and theories you learn about and apply in the course of your undergraduate studies are varied enough to support you in interests which may for example, include international relations, or studies of comparative religions, and cultural identities. You will work with educational and employment advisors throughout your degree. UCLan’s BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology degree offers an exciting opportunity to get involved in a fast growing academic area in which new topics of study are opening up for criminological and sociological investigation every day. On this course you will examine how crime is perceived, defined and managed in modern society, and critically address those social differences, in particular race, class and gender, that are central to criminology.
