If you are interested in studying crime and theology, then the BA (Hons) Criminology and Theology degree will give you a solid grounding in both disciplines, and give you the opportunity to combine two subjects, which complement your interests or career goals. The course offers you the opportunity to study a wide range of themes and topics across a broad sweep of modules, emphasising the value of empirical and theoretical approaches. This is achieved by studying the changing nature of crime and the social, political, historical and individual forces behind these changes, with specific focus on study and influence of the main disciplines of Christian theology. In the first and second years, you will follow a traditional broad approach to the study of criminology and theology. In years three and four, you will examine in-depth particular areas of criminology and theology, allowing you to study specific topics and themes which reflect staff research specialisms. Each year, you will build on your analytical and research abilities. The degree also offers the opportunity to study other Humanities subjects such as criminology, history, literature, archaeology, and politics. Please note that UHI North Highland, UHI Outer Hebrides and UHI West Highland have changed their names to become UHI North, West and Hebrides. This will not impact on your choice of course or how and where you will study.
