Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

This joint honours degree in Criminology and Social Policy combines two exciting and rapidly-developing subject areas that each have an enormous influence on all of our lives.

You will explore key theories and debates relating to how societies meet the needs of their citizens and the ways that social policies are shaped by the causes and effects of crime on individuals and communities.

You will examine themes and values such as social justice, equality, fairness, and citizenship, alongside specific policy focal points such as crime, health, education, housing, disability, poverty, and the family, as well as gaining an in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system.

Throughout your joint honours degree, you will develop excellent research and analytical skills and the ability to communicate your ideas effectively, both verbally and in writing.
