Program Overview

This combined honours degree allows you to consider major global challenges through both a sociological and criminological lens.

Within the Sociology element of the programme, you will gain insight into various aspects of the social world and how these areas influence the social challenges faced by individuals. You will explore topics such as ethnicity, class, migration, and feminism, and consider the historical explanations and developments for these areas in the contemporary world. You will investigate how these topics promote inclusion in society or create social divisions based on different opinions and experiences. This will encourage you to have an analytical approach to different theories and explanations and develop fair arguments based on data and your individual critical viewpoint.

You will develop your imaginative thinking and awareness around social inequalities and a range of important sociological issues.

Within Criminology you will explore what crime is and how it is defined by the law and public opinion. You will build your awareness of a range of different perspectives and explore why it is important to think about crime, its impacts and how it could be prevented in future.

You will research the theoretical explanations to understand the motivations for criminal behaviour and the subsequent investigation process. You will consider the many factors that may influence a person to commit crime such as socio demographic issues, peer groups and culture. You will evaluate how these influencing factors may differ internationally, for example, what is perceived to be a crime and the way it is controlled and dealt with by authorities across the globe.

Throughout the course you will explore the different methods used to collect and analyse criminological data and develop a robust understanding of the consequences associated with crime. You will also be encouraged to question whether outcomes are reasonable and effective to control crime within society.
