If you’re interested in society and personal identity, and you want to explore what makes people commit crimes, and how crime may be prevented, this course is a highly rewarding and fascinating combination of sociology and criminology. There’s an equal weighting to both disciplines, and the course is designed to help you prepare for a future career in sectors such as the civil and public services, charities and others. How will you learn? On the course you’ll be taught by experts from both the sociology and criminology disciplines.
