Course summary

If you are interested into exploring behaviour and backgrounds of criminals, finding out whether one type of person is more likely to commit crime than another, or perhaps discovering what drives a person in a criminal direction, then this is the course for you! Shining a spotlight on criminology from a sociological perspective, this BA gives you the sophisticated knowledge and analytical skillset needed to break into the public and social sectors, as well as the criminal justice system.Taught by academic experts and specialist guest speakers, you’ll get to grips with advanced theory, tackling an assortment of hot topics such as trafficking, migration, terrorism, and many other eye-opening components. Additionally, you’ll garner industry experience during either a 30-week or 20-day placement. In your final year you’ll get the chance to develop your own piece of research, in the form of a final year dissertation.
