University of Essex has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Join us on an intellectual journey through the past. You obtain a thorough grounding in history and criminology, and are encouraged to consider the ways in which histories of crime and the discipline of criminology overlap and influence each other. You take the module Introduction to Crime, Law and Society alongside history modules in your first year, and continue to combine modules in history and criminology in your second and third years. Our history modules explore history through the eyes of ordinary people, giving them the voice they often lacked at the time. Our criminology modules explore the nature of crime, criminal justice and punishment within wider social contexts. There range of relevant options to choose from in both disciplines means you can choose the focus of your final-year dissertation.
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
