Course summary

Combine Criminology and Sociology to improve your understanding of some of the most pressing issues today. Study crime and social issues both in and outside the lecture room, and gain an enhanced understanding of current debates. You’ll graduate with skills for employment in areas as diverse as policing, probation, youth offending and government. This course will take you on a journey through the topical crime and social issues of the day, the criminal justice responses to them and their portrayal in the media. Using real-life case studies, academic research and interactive learning sessions, you’ll gain a deep understanding of critical debates in both subjects. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your own specific research interests in your final year dissertation. Over three years, you’ll study issues such as the media, its moral panics and promotion of fear; sex, violence and the profiling of such offenders; deviant behaviour; youth offending; war and terror and genocide. Our optional modules will also allow you to explore issues from corporate crime to human rights, and sexual violence to burglary.But you’ll go beyond the lecture theatre, too. With visits to courts and prisons, you’ll examine the trial process and methods of rehabilitation, punishment and retribution (historical and modern), deviance, race and gender. Every year you’ll have the chance to travel abroad on one of our international field trips and examine crime and crime control in different geographical and cultural contexts. Our previous trips have included visits to Amsterdam, Krakow, Estonia and Spain.Working alongside experienced, research-active academics, you’ll develop your research skills, and get used to speaking in public at our conferences and research seminars.
