About Criminology and Sociology at University of Kent

Criminology asks key questions such as: why do people commit crime? How should young offenders be treated? Can crime be prevented? And what is the role of policing in society? You search for answers to these by examining the police, the courts, prisons and society as a whole. 

Sociology also seeks to answer important questions: how do societies work? What are the effects of government policy on individuals? What influences life chances? Studying sociology helps you make sense of a world undergoing unprecedented social change and uncertainty, exploring areas such as race and ethnic identity, sociological approaches to violence, terrorism and society and new media technologies.

Combining these subjects gives a thorough, yet broad understanding of the surrounding issues, concepts and theories.
