Course summary

What is special about this course?

The BA (Hons) Politics and Criminology joint degree focuses on the different political structures and ideologies across the world and how they shape our lives, with the exploration of the changing nature of crime and the social, political, historical and individual forces behind these changes.

  • You can study individual modules for personal or professional development
  • It can be possible to transfer between single and joint honours options, usually during your first or second year, and advice will be available from your personal academic tutor
