Content

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 the social world 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.

The degree also draws on other subjects such as history, research methods, social policy and socio-legal studies.
