The Department of Criminology offers the following Bachelor Programs:
Criminology and Criminal Justice BA (HONS)
The course goes that little bit further by including criminal justice and examining how offenders and victims are treated by the criminal justice system. The subject is developing rapidly as new areas of study open up for criminological investigation. You’ll explore issues concerning how crime is defined and managed in our society and will have the opportunity to specialize so that you can tailor your degree depending on the career path you are interested in, eg policing, the prison service or social work.
Criminology and Sociology BA (HONS)
On this course you’ll explore and critically assess the way society perceives, defines and manages crime – and graduate fully prepared for a career in public or community based services. This rapidly growing area of study changes as new criminological and sociological issues arise – and our close links with industry together with current research means our curriculum keeps up and reflects this. You will explore both the nature of crime and of modern society through a wide range of modules. You will learn about social differences, for example, based upon gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, class and age. You will also look at social and legal perceptions of and responses to crime, criminality and victimization. The methods and theories you learn about and apply in the course of your undergraduate studies are varied enough to support you in interests which may for example, include international relations, or studies of comparative religions, and cultural identities. You will work with educational and employment advisors throughout your degree.
