Course summary

BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology offers the exciting opportunity to combine the study of two cutting-edge disciplines in the vibrant city of Manchester.The course is aimed at students who are interested in both disciplines and want to study crime and its causes, patterns, consequences and responses by situating them in the wider context of society.The first year introduces students to the building blocks of criminology and sociology: key sociological and criminological theories, social divisions and problems, the criminal justice system, crime policy and practice, and key social transformations such as digital culture. Students will receive training in a wide range of research methods during the first two years, to become equipped to undertake their own independent research project in the final year.Our large, multi-disciplinary department believes in offering students extensive optionality to study specific areas of both sociology and criminology in depth. Throughout the degree, there is an emphasis on developing skills and experiences that are relevant to professional careers, including work experience, study-abroad schemes, and independent project work. In your final year you have the option of moving onto the BSc route, which means you will receive extensive quantitative methods training and graduate with a BSc. You may also have the opportunity to spend an extra year expanding your horizons studying with one of our partner universities overseas.*This course has a foundation year available.*Placement and/or study abroad options may be available, potentially extending the duration of study up to 4 years.
