Course summary

Taught by world-leading, research-active academics from our prestigious Law School and the Department of Languages and Cultures, our unique approach to your first year introduces you to topics including drugs and crime, youth justice, sex offending, and the cultural context of the French language. Year 2 is your chance to build on your language skills and study the culture, politics and history of the French-speaking world in more depth. You will also explore the ways that crime is measured and engage with the social and legal responses to crimes against the environment. Your third year, a compulsory year abroad, provides you with a rare opportunity to develop your language and criminological skills in a global context. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement. In your final year, you will consolidate your French language skills and tailor your degree to your personal and professional interests, selecting from a range of modules including Criminal Careers and Criminal Justice Research.
