Course summary

To tackle crime, we need to understand it why it happens, what people feel about it, and how it impacts on individuals and society.Exploring these issues from different angles is an essential part of discovering more effective deterrents and better forms of rehabilitation.Studying this subject will give you the knowledge and skills to play your part in that work whether you choose to move into the criminal justice system itself or a related field.Why study at UWE Bristol?BA(Hons) Criminology teaches you about crime and the criminal justice system, drawing on sociology, law, psychology and philosophy, and applying theories, knowledge and research to real, contemporary issues.Work with inspirational practitioners and researchers to explore the different perspectives of victims, offenders, the criminal justice system and the cultural forces at play.Learn how to think critically, write reports, interpret data, formulate arguments, and make ethical judgements.You'll carry out your own research, hear from guest speakers, and take part in work-based learning through our links with organisations such as the Bristol Young Offenders Scheme, the Institute of Psychotherapy and the police.Activities such as volunteering, placements and internships will deepen your professional skills and knowledge further, to make you highly sought after when you graduate.
