Course summary

This degree delivers up-to-the-minute knowledge from experts at the leading-edge of their fields. It introduces you to key criminal issues and shapes your understanding of the relationship between crime, society, politics, the media and criminal justice policy. Get set to have your understanding of crime, deviance and the criminal justice process challenged and developed. This is achieved through the study of sociological and criminological explanations for crime, and by exploring the ways in which crime is controlled and regulated in modern societies.

Later in the programme, you’ll choose from an array of core and specialist option modules in criminology and sociology. These include modules that explore contemporary criminological theory, race and crime, policing and police work, penal institutions, human rights and cybercrime. An optional work placement is available in fourth year, which will require you to attend a relevant work environment outside of the university.

Learning and Assessment

You’ll learn through a blend of lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, online discussion forums, video screenings, guest speaker presentations, directed and private study, and student-focussed group work.

Around a third of the course is assessed through examination, although the precise proportion will be dependent on your module choices.

Other assessment methods include supervised examinations, essays, reports, portfolios, presentations, project work, class and online tests, and reflective analyses.

In your final year, you’ll design and produce a research project under the dedicated supervision of a member of academic staff.
