Course summary

Criminology is a discipline with a number of robust and lively theoretical and empirical debates. Through engaging in these debates students will gain the very important undergraduate skill of critical understanding. Sociology is a subject that developed with the modern world and its key task is to analyse the changing nature of the social world with particular reference to recent developments. https://www.uos.ac.uk/courses/ug/bsc-hons-criminology-and-sociology We have regular guest speakers who are practitioners that work in the field with either victims or offenders. As a Criminology and Sociology graduate, you will be well equipped with advanced skills and the confidence to thrive in a variety of roles. Attention to context allows you to make more informed decisions. Benefit from small study groups and more time with your tutors. Studying criminology and sociology together will allow you to challenge common-sense notions of criminal and deviant behaviours by critically examining academic research and be equipped with the sociological tools you need to understand the context to the world you live in.
