Course summary

The BSc Criminology and Criminal Justice is a research-led programme taught by internationally recognised academics whose research contributes to, and challenges, traditional crime and criminal justice studies.Led by principles of social and racial justice, the programme focuses on contemporary social problems, from prison abolition, migration and deportation and social welfare, to gendered violence, terrorism and drugs.Our students learn about real-world events through focus on national and international criminal justice policy, institutions and practices. They also think about the people who make, and those who are subjected to, these systems and processes. Topics are theoretically informed, drawing on political economy, feminist, critical race and queer theory.The programme provides a solid grounding in key criminology topics, methods and theories. Themes range from punishment, policing, security and surveillance to organised, corporate and state crime.
