Criminology and sociology are a logical – and valuable – combination of subjects. Crime happens in social contexts. Sociology helps us understand those contexts. Demand for criminologists with insight into crime’s impact on society is higher than ever. This course can train you to meet that demand. Through real-world examples, you'll explore crime’s effect on society and how society responds to crime. You'll consider your own attitudes to crime, criminals and victims. And you’ll study topics like the relationship between the individual and society, the concept of deviance and how offenders are punished. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
