The Sociology and Criminology with Year Abroad BA programme combines two distinct disciplines which provide insights into the nature of social deviance. Sociology offers a core social science perspective which can both enhance and draw on insights from criminology whilst criminology is the study of ‘crime’ and its causes, and it will provide ways to understand social responses to crime Students joining the BA Sociology and Criminology programme have an exciting opportunity to develop not just an understanding of both fields of study in their own right, but also, perhaps more crucially, an understanding of the relationships and conflicts generated by these respective fields. You will gain an understanding of the basic principles of social research, as well as looking into the strengths, weaknesses and uses of specific sources of data and research methods. Your third year on the Sociology and Criminology BA will be spent overseas at a university in the EU or elsewhere in the world. After completing your year abroad, you will return for your fourth and final year to the same degree programme.
