About Criminology at University of Nottingham

On this course, you will gain a detailed knowledge of a dynamic and exciting subject area, as well as being able to choose modules according to your interests.

Criminology is an interdisciplinary area of study that draws on insights from sociology, social policy, law and the social sciences more generally.

Criminologists adopt different theoretical perspectives and use a range of research methods to increase our understanding of crime and criminal justice. They are interested in offenders (and how they are defined), victims of crime, social contexts in which crime and victimisation take place, and ways of controlling crime - whether that is through changing social policies or the work of specialist institutions like the police, probation and prison services.

As part of your degree you will have the opportunity to study a variety of sociology and social policy modules, which will enable you to see crime, its causes and responses to it in its wider social and global context.
