Overview

Studied together, these intertwined disciplines provide insights into a range of crime-related matters, such as the cause and effect of criminal actions, the form and outcome of social disorders, the policing and regulation of public order, the procedures and techniques of the criminal justice system, and the relationship between behaviours and punishments.
Our Criminology and Sociology programme will help you to master the methods and analytical tools required to conduct and evaluate research on contemporary problems relating to crime, deviance and social control. You’ll also have the chance to apply such tools to a range of other topics in the study of contemporary societies.

We will develop your understanding of the key concepts, theories and principles of both criminology and sociology, and their application across a range of relevant substantive areas.

Through combining criminological and sociological theory with training in professional social research, you will graduate with a broad range of communicative, analytical and organisational skills – and the confidence to apply them in your future career.
