Course summary

You will study the fundamentals of criminology and sociology, exploring key theories and learning how to apply them to the world we live in. Consider how crime and deviance are responded to by society and how it's portrayed by the media. Think and critique current inequalities in society and how crime, deviance and the criminal justice system impact them. Debate and analyse different perspectives to help shape a better society. On specialist modules you will learn the qualitative and quantitative research methods used by sociologists and start applying them to your own research. We will introduce you to different theoretical perspectives and, together with your peers, you will discuss how these can be used to analyse topics such as deviance, social inequalities, victimology, the criminal justice system and more. 75% of your modules will be sociological modules while the other 25% will be made up of Criminology modules, giving you the chance to gain knowledge in both areas. Our goal is to help you to develop your critical thinking skills, to back up your ideas with evidence and reason and to learn to design, plan and execute research that supports your interests. You will be supported throughout your degree by our team of academics who are all active in social research. This means the material you cover is the most relevant it can possibly be. Engage with them in seminars, workshops and one to one tutorials and let their expertise become yours.
