Course summary

Explore the nature of crime, justice and the effectiveness of punishment, and how crime and victimisation are represented in the media. Challenge your existing opinions and develop skills in evaluating contrasting evidence, critical thinking and crafting arguments by learning how sociologists, psychologists, political theorists and law experts approach crime and complex social problems. Our BA (Hons) Criminology course places value on hands-on learning. We learn through case studies, the latest research and interactive sessions. There may be field trips to courts, prisons and sites such as Auschwitz.We have a supportive community of staff and students at ARU. Throughout your BA (Hons) Criminology degree, you’ll benefit from one-to-one personal tutoring and dedicated Criminology social media groups.Together, we’ll explore the causes of, responses to, and media representation of the most relevant crimes of today. These include violence against women and girls, crimes of the powerful, opportunistic crimes, war crimes, corruption and urban culture. You’ll prepare for your future career from the first semester: building a portfolio and CV, attending volunteer and employment fairs, taking part in our annual Criminology conference, and hearing from key figures in criminal justice debates and the authors of important criminology texts. What’s more, our links to local and national organisations give you the chance to gain work experience, and lay the groundwork for your final-year research project.You could also enhance your CV by studying abroad for a semester – with funding on offer to help cover the cost.Once you’ve graduated, you can continue to develop your skills with one of our Masters degrees, such as MA Criminology.
