About Criminology and Sociology 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. Sociology studies the nature, structure and workings of human society. This course will appeal if you have an interest in studying * crime, criminality and criminal justice institutions and processes * society, social groups and social structures 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 This course equips you with a thorough understanding of the relationship between criminological and sociological perspectives and criminal justice policy. It allows you to study for a joint degree but with a specific focus on other social science disciplines. It also equips you with the skills needed in a constantly changing labour market. You graduate with a wide knowledge and understanding of the important theories in criminology and applied social science. The criminology subject group has strong links with the criminal justice sector in terms of its teaching, training, research and consultancy.The work and expertise of our Hallam Centre for Community Justice and our Centre for Research on Human Behaviour support the teaching on this course.
