Our BA (Hons) Criminology degree has been designed to enable students to develop an understanding of the complex nature of crime, punishment and justice. Alternative solutions to crime prevention are examined and there is the opportunity to investigate the impact of crime on society.
Teaching is research-informed and draws upon all aspects of the social sciences, including politics and social policy. Specialist areas covered include youth culture, human rights, resistance, penal policy and war crimes.
This course aims to offer specialist modules designed to complement each other while developing specific skills in criminological studies and research. The course places a strong emphasis upon not merely 'learning about' criminology, but also being able to apply that knowledge to real life issues and problems.
