Investigate, scrutinise and understand the causes and consequences of crime with our Criminology degree.
- An interdisciplinary programme of study and a broad range of staff expertise.
- Examines crime, justice, punishment and contemporary challenges and debates at local, national and transnational levels of society.
- A theoretical, empirical and applied education in Criminology to develop your knowledge and skills.
Criminology - Year one - You’ll learn about the research traditions of criminology and be introduced to key concepts, theories and issues. You’ll investigate different types of crime such as property crime, sexual and violent crime, homicide, corporate crime, anti-social behaviour and drug use. You’ll also learn about criminal law and criminal justice agencies and institutions. Year two - You’ll study contemporary debates in criminology, criminal justice, and the psychology of crime, and train in research methods and crime mapping techniques. Final Year - You’ll undertake an original piece of criminological research in an area that interests you, along with comparative study of criminal justice and penalty in a global context. Law - The LLB Law degree covers the ‘foundation law subjects’ required by the Bar Standards Board, including tort, contract, criminal, and property law. It also introduces practical skills such as case analysis, negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, drafting, interviewing and mooting. You'll develop the ability to understand connections between legal topics; this replicates legal and paralegal practice, where problems are rarely neatly packaged. You'll also be supported to develop your professional practice and employability skills throughout the degree. You'll select from a range of interdisciplinary options including business, criminology and sociology, as well as law options such as corporate law, employment law or entertainment, media and intellectual property law. This will enable you not only to be a better lawyer – due to your experiences outside of a legal education framework – but will also provide you with better employment prospects if you choose not to follow a career in law. We'll encourage you to undertake a work placement, and the law clinic in the third year is an experiential learning option that will give you the opportunity to provide legal advice to clients.
We use a mix of traditional and contemporary assessments, including essays, group and individual presentations, online reports, surveys, projects, practical tasks and exams. You’ll also learn to communicate key messages visually, as well as in words.
