Course summary

Our BA Criminology with Social Psychology is run by the Department of Sociology, which is rated top 10 in the UK for research quality (REF 2014) and is ranked among the top 50 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings 2017. Criminology demands critical engagement with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today. You critique ideas and concepts of justice, punishment and social control. Alongside this you examine how social psychological approaches to crime-related matters are becoming increasingly important in helping better-understand the interpersonal dynamics in crime control organisations as well as questions of criminal motivation. A social view of crime and control holds that these issues are best understood when considered alongside questions of power, resources, rights, (in)equality, governance and culture. On this four year version of this course you can spend your third year on a placement with an external organisation.
