Course summary

Immigration, human trafficking, social injustice and youth unemployment make headline news almost daily. These are the key issues of our time. If you’re interested in such issues, and want to understand why migration may be linked to global inequalities, or the role of social media in protest movements, then you should consider studying sociology and criminology. Combined, these two disciplines develop your sociological and criminological imagination and answer questions about society and its various institutions.With its unique position in central London our University gives you access to invaluable resources for your academic work. The Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey and the BBC are some of the resources our students use. Enrolling on the course, you can also gain valuable experience studying abroad for a semester and be part of an international student culture. The programme is led by specialists in their fields, whose interests include human rights, migration, gender, ethnicity, social activism, media, psychology, theory and methodology.The Sociology and Criminology BA Honours degree enables you to be sufficiently specialised in criminology to enter professions connected to the criminal justice system, but also benefit from the broader careers available to sociologists. You will also gain the transferable skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Our graduates go on to careers in environmental organisations, local government, non-governmental organisations, teaching, youth work and many more.This combined degree programme offers a unique curriculum which cannot be studied at any other UK university. Distinctive features include our use of London as a learning and teaching resource and the opportunity to experience other cultures through fieldwork. A number of modules include field trips around London as well as in Berlin, Dublin and Turkey. There is also an opportunity for you to study abroad for a semester, currently in Miami, Melbourne or Sydney. Teaching and learning includes lectures, seminars, workshops and practical classes, individual tutorials, and field trips. The course also includes a wide range of assessments, including essays, policy reports, case studies, exams, individual and group presentations, and your dissertation.
