If you're looking for a degree that helps you understand human and social interactions from different angles, this BA (Hons) Geography and Criminology is the one for you. Geography is the study of the earth and the link between physical and human landscapes. It explores the relationships between people, place and the environment and how these vary across and between places. You will look at issues such as land use, planning and development, globalisation, climate change, energy, and tourism, in order to examine human relationships with the environment. Geography graduates are among the most employable, with skills developed in presenting ideas in reports and oral presentations, through data collection and analysis, and in the use of specialist mapping and statistical software. Criminology draws on a wide range of human and social science disciplines and is both a theoretical and empirical subject, with many of criminology’s most significant advances achieved through empirical studies. Core to this programme are the development of clear and confident research methods and analysis skills. You will also develop a critical understanding of the local, national and international contexts of crime, offenders, victimisation and responses to crime (including cybercrime). Delivered online by blended learning and available to study from home, you will benefit from collaborative discussions and activities with colleagues from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences, facilitated by tutors with many years of experience in delivering online education.
