By studying Sociology and Criminology, you will investigate the causes of criminal behaviour as well as its consequences for victims and for society as a whole. You’ll pay particular attention to the role of criminal justice organisations in defining and responding to crime as a social problem.
The interdisciplinary nature of the programme will give you sociological, historical, political and psychological perspectives for understanding and responding to crime and deviance. You’ll explore theoretical, empirical and methodological issues associated with sociology and other fields of social research and develop skills in critical analysis. Optional modules will cover issues as diverse as forensic science, war crimes, ethics, addiction and human rights.
In studying Sociology you’ll develop an understanding of the contemporary world, human behaviour and the forces shaping society. You’ll examine social, political, historical, cultural and economic issues and study topics as diverse as class and social inequality, health and disability, globalisation, crime, countercultures, family life, gender and the development of cities.
Our Sociology modules are specially designed to help you develop an understanding of how societies, institutions and practices came into being, how they work and might change in the future. This highly relevant discipline is particularly concerned with social transformation and in developing an insight into the major challenges facing contemporary society.
