You’ll combine criminology and sociology to examines contemporary social life from a critical perspective – focusing on the causes and consequences of crime and disorder and how communities respond to the challenges of a changing social world. With the opportunity to work with external organisations, you’ll develop the skills for helping to create safer and stronger communities when you graduate.
You’ll be able to pursue your interests to match your career goals through option modules covering topics such as crime scene analysis, crimes against humanity, migration, domestic violence, the power of the media, child sexual exploitation, anti-social behaviour, terrorism and community safety.
Your skills will be developed through practical exercises, ranging from mock crime scene investigations, to survey research with local community groups.
The majority of your assessments will be non-exam based, focusing instead on the skills you will use in the work environment.
