Course summary

The BA (Hons) Social Science (Criminology and Law) degree programme incorporates multi-disciplinary theoretical explanations of crime and deviance to key issues and aspects of the criminal justice system, support agencies and networks. Students have the opportunity to consider practical scenarios in a variety of aspects of the Criminal Justice System (CJS), such as public perception of communities on crime. This enables students the theoretical knowledge to develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills in crime prevention and how these are applied in society and in practical criminal justice settings. Students’ learning is enhanced by strong links to local employers and application of their theoretical knowledge to researching employment choices and ideas in the criminal justice system and other social science related careers.
