University of Lincoln has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This combination offers students the opportunity to study for a law degree while also having the chance to develop a deeper understanding about the causes and consequences of crime. The LLB (Hons) Law and Criminology degree is concerned with the rules by which society is organised, how they can be changed and what happens when they are broken. It is designed to appeal to students with excellent problem-solving abilities who enjoy debating and critiquing. Criminology is an interdisciplinary field that draws on sociology, anthropology, psychology and the law, and the course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to graduate well qualified for a diverse range of careers. Criminology is a well-established discipline at Lincoln. It combines science, social science and politics with specialist areas such as youth culture, human rights, resistance, penal policy and war crimes.
The Law major constitutes two-thirds of this joint course, which provides students with the opportunity to develop legal skills and a sound knowledge of the professionally required foundation areas of law. The remaining third of the course consists of criminology modules, which can include Applying Criminology, Images of Crime and Criminal Justice, and Human Rights (Social Sciences). In the first year, students have the opportunity to study key social science concepts, social issues and justice, as well as the context of the English legal system – its origins, history and practices. Second-year topics include the application of criminology and the way that findings translate into policy, criminal law, European Union law and land law. In the final year of the degree, students study equity and trusts and penology and penal policy, and are expected to produce an extended dissertation in an area of their choice.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
