Course summary

This degree investigates today's contemporary, globalized world and the challenges it presents to order, social justice and human rights. The combination of both perspectives enables you to explore ways in which the local and the global intersect on a daily level. You'll gain a thorough understanding of the theoretical foundations of criminology and international relations, in research methods and ethics, and academic writing and communication. In the final year you can take an applied criminology placement for credit, and you'll be encouraged to volunteer in organizations aligned to the course, like victim support helplines, advocacy groups, justice campaign organizations, international charities and NGOs. In the 21st century it's easier than ever for people and goods to cross borders, but it's also easier for criminals and contraband to make the same movements. Although both our economies and daily lives depend on the ability of people and goods to circulate around the world at speed, these processes are also accompanied by division, inequality and conflict.

Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. We encourage a professional work ethic, which includes how to manage your time. A range of additional support is available to students who require it, particularly through the Faculty's Centre for Academic Support and Enhancement. Our courses are carefully constructed to allow you to build knowledge and skills progressively during your degree programme. We constantly update our curriculum to ensure that it covers the latest developments in your subject area, including the research and professional experience that your tutors bring to the course. Our course teams also draw on the wealth of experience provided by our professional contacts and highly successful alumni who feed into the design of our courses and provide master classes and workshops to enrich your learning.
