Building on the OU’s reputation for cutting-edge criminological and sociological teaching and research, this joint degree offers you the chance to study lively, topical and sometimes controversial subject matter. You’ll investigate questions of crime, criminalisation and social harm, to determine whether society’s responses to these questions are adequate or appropriate. You’ll also explore how social worlds are made and how we, as individuals, are shaped by the societies in which we live.
There are no formal qualifications required to study this degree. Computer and internet access required.
If you’re new to study or to the OU, we recommend that you start with a course at Level 1.
