Culture, Heritage and Criminology

UHI North Highland


Thurso Campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


Most of UHI humanities subjects can be studied as joint honours as well as single honours. Joint honours programmes give you the opportunity to combine two subjects, which complement your interests or career goals. You will usually concentrate on both subjects equally. It can be possible to transfer between single and joint honours options, usually during your first or second year, and advice will be available from your personal academic tutor.

This course covers:
Culture and heritage: cultural identity of the Highlands and Islands, its communities and issues affecting the region within the context of Scotland, the British Isles and internationally.

Criminology: the changing nature of crime and the social, political, historical and individual forces behind these changes.
