Content

This is one of several specialist routes available in our BA (Honours) Social Sciences degree. Half of your studies will be in interdisciplinary social sciences. For the other half, you’ll learn how criminology helps us make sense of a range of issues related to crime, social conflict, criminal justice and criminalisation. On completion of your degree, you’ll be able to apply criminological and social theories, analyse a variety of evidence including statistical data, present arguments, write clearly and conduct your own research – opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.
