About Criminology at Sheffield Hallam University

We have a long tradition of teaching applied social sciences, and this course forms part of that programme. We offer it in response to an increasing fascination with criminology, which has led to a high demand for the subject. Criminology studies the many causes and effects of crime and the most effective methods of reducing it. This course will appeal if you have an interest in studying crime, criminality and criminal justice institutions and processes. Crime is a major issue in society and attracts a lot of political and media attention. If you choose to complete a criminology degree, you are likely to be interested in how society and government respond to hate crime domestic violence and other violent crime crimes of dishonesty the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders different types of offenders the police, probation service, youth justice service and the courts You may be considering a career in criminal and community justice or following other options in the voluntary and community sector. You study areas such as * criminology in a social science context * criminological theories and debates * criminological research methods * criminal justice policies * the part played by agencies in the criminal justice system such as the police service, the prison service and the legal profession.
