The BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology will give you a solid grounding in both disciplines with an emphasis on the value of empirical and theoretical approaches. The course explores the changing nature of social work and of crime and addresses the social, political, historical and individual forces behind such changes.
The context for both subjects is contemporary Highlands and Islands and British communities, as well as international perspectives, looking at their similarities and differences. There is strong emphasis on research methods which will give you the skills necessary to carry out independent research for your future career, including your dissertation in the fourth year.
The degree also draws on other social science subjects such as research methods, history, literature, archaeology, and socio-legal studies.
