Course summary

Investigate, scrutinise and understand the causes and consequences of crime with our Criminology degree.- An interdisciplinary programme of study and a broad range of staff expertise.- Examines crime, justice, punishment and contemporary challenges and debates at local, national and transnational levels of society.- A theoretical, empirical and applied education in Criminology to develop your knowledge and skills.We're fascinated by crime. Turn on the television or search for something online and you'll soon encounter images, reports and programmes about crime, justice and punishment. Crime saturates media and popular culture, suggesting both our enduring fascination with wrongdoing and its consequences, and crime's status as an ongoing social problem.But, what's the story behind these representations of crime? Criminology explores the causes, motivations and patterns of criminal conduct. In addition to improving our knowledge and understanding of crime, Criminology also informs policies and practices in policing, law, criminal justice and punishment.With our Criminology degree, you'll study crime from a variety of approaches, gain practical and relevant experience, and develop a range of transferable skills that you can take into a range of careers and employment sectors.Our Law degree develops your practical and vocational skills alongside your knowledge of legal theory. Designed to help you attain many of the skills required to complete the practice elements of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE), Law at Bath Spa develops your legal knowledge, research and professional skills.This innovative Law degree is informed by the new regulatory framework for the training of solicitors and barristers, and meets the requirements of the Bar Standards Board. Gain a broad understanding of legal systems and criminal law. You'll expand your knowledge to topics such as international law, media and entertainment law, and cybercrime. In your final year, you’ll hone your practice skills in our law clinic, or undertake a law research project. Learn how to be a lawyer in practice and understand the business of law, so that you can hit the ground running when you graduate. We recognise that many Law students don’t pursue a career in law and have built career planning into each strand of the course, with a focus on the growing number of roles that require related skill sets. These include roles in governance, risk management, advocacy, public policy, HR and finance.**More about the Professional Placement Year**A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study.
