This BA (Hons) Criminology and Law provides a fascinating approach to two complementary fields in the Social Sciences. You will get to enhance your knowledge of these two linked and well established areas, spending equal time on both disciplines. You will examine the foundations of legal study that underpin the relationship between crime, society and the law, focusing on the political, psychological and social aspects of criminology. As well as gaining a detailed and in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system, you will examine related elements of the legal system and critically analyse their connection with criminal behaviour in terms of the individual and wider society.
