Criminology at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

What is the relationship between power, crime and social change? Are you interested in learning about the whole spectrum of crime, from antisocial behaviour and corporate crime to genocide? Our dynamic criminology degree could be for you. What is the role and function of the criminal justice system? How do perspectives differ on the causes of crime? And how does the media represent social issues? Study with us to explore criminology, social justice and human rights. Our criminology degree shines a light on policing, punishment and the courts but goes much further. When it comes to justice and rights, you’ll analyse the significance of class, gender, sexuality and family origin. You’ll explore the spectrum of crime, from antisocial behaviour and domestic violence to corporate crime, genocide and state crime. Visiting academics and experts will enable you to put your studies into context. As a criminology student you’ll be based in our £6 million Law and Psychology building, which provides ultra-modern teaching and learning facilities. You’ll attend lectures, seminars and workshops and carry out independent study. We also provide the opportunity for you to do research fieldwork and a work placement. These will add a practical edge to what you’ve learnt, and help you stand out to employers.
