Find out more about the TEF.

This joint honours degree enables you to explore the inextricably linked disciplines of politics and criminology. You will gain a real-life understanding of the world of politics, looking at current practice in the UK, while also focusing on developments and changes around the world, discovering why we have certain structures and organisations, how they came to be formed and how they make and communicate decisions. Criminological theory and an exploration of the criminal justice process provide the context for exploring phenomena such as social, judicial and political responses to crime, the construction of crime and social deviance in the media, as well as crimes of the powerful, the politics of imprisonment and human rights. If you want to gain a unique insight into how political processes can shape the criminal justice system and vice versa, as well as how contemporary political issues can impact crime and crime reduction, then this is the degree for you. You will graduate with a set of key transferable skills including the ability to conduct research, craft a message to communicate a particular point of view and analyse and understand complex information.
