The BA (Hons) Criminology provides you with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop a critical understanding of the major theories deployed throughout criminology.
Criminology draws on a wide range of human and social science disciplines and is both a theoretical and empirical subject, with many of criminology’s most significant advances achieved through empirical studies. Core to this programme is developing clear and confident research methods and analysis skills. You will also develop a critical understanding of the local, national and international context of crime, offenders, victimisation and responses to crime (including cybercrime).
