Key features of this course:
Our Criminology degrees are designed for individuals who have an interest in developing their knowledge and critical understanding of crime, its causes and impact on the victims and wider society.
As an academic subject criminology has its basis in both academia and practice with a primary focus on research and debated explanations for crime, victimisation and deviance, and responses to those crimes, by societies and individuals. It is an active and lively subject that moves away from traditional teaching of the social sciences to embrace the contemporary and innovative topics and practices of 21st century criminal justice.
The inter-disciplinary nature of the subject is mirrored in the construction of our programmes. With core criminological learning complemented by Psychology, Law and Sociology, prompting shared learning with students from other disciplines.
