Course summary

**Course Overview**- On our Criminology and Sociology degree you’ll explore and critically assess the way society perceives, defines and manages crime - and graduate fully prepared for a career in public or community based services.- This degree offers an exciting opportunity to get involved in a fast growing academic area in which new topics of study are opening up for criminological and sociological investigation every day. On this course you will explore both the nature of crime and of modern society through a wide range of modules. Facilities include crime scene houses, a moot court room, a legal skills recording suite, and several open access ICT rooms.- You will learn about social differences - for example, based upon gender, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, religion, disability, class and age. You will also look at social and legal perceptions of, and responses to, crime and criminality.- Our strong industry links and cutting-edge research ensure that the curriculum is kept up-to-date and aligns with the skills employers need. You will work with educational and employment advisors throughout your degree, and we will ensure you have every opportunity to secure guidance in choosing your next steps.**Why study with us**- We offer option modules on our Criminology courses, so you can tailor your degree to your interests.- Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Criminology and Sociology is ranked 10th in England for student satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2021)- The many progression routes presented on our Criminology and Sociology course allows you to customise your journey to your career aspirations.**Further Information**- You can undertake an elective in Year 1 or Year 2 from the Centre of Volunteering here at the University; this is entirely optional. One such elective is ‘Guns and Gangs’, and there are others which will train you in mentoring or leadership, or creating social projects and programmes and fundraising within different communities.- Many second and third year students undertake voluntary work outside of their degree, joining youth offending teams, women’s refuges, children’s charities and community policing projects etc. The School very much encourages this kind of work experience as it vastly improves employment prospects.- You might also consider community development work, local government administration and adult guidance work with ex-offenders. Paid employment in the voluntary sector is an increasingly important area, with our graduates finding positions in victim support, women’s refuges, disability services etc.
