Why study Criminology and Sociology?
The mix of Criminology and Sociology is an ideal one to offer you the breadth and depth of knowledge you need to understand classical, radical and critical perspectives on crime, punishment, social change and social inequalities. You will be taught by academics who undertake relevant research and influence government policy development.
Themes include human trafficking, modern slavery, terrorism, counter-terrorism, migration, human rights, prisons, policing, race and more. The degree will train you to critically reflect on emerging new perspectives on crime, including cyber-crime, and the use of artificial intelligence to understand and predict crime.
Crime and society are intertwined. No society is crime free. In the UK criminology is most strongly associated with sociology. Sociologists study how society is organised and how people form social relationships. Criminology examines crime and deviance, how they are socially constructed, and crime patterns and trends across space and time.
You will be taught to explore the variety and volume of big data and how to use it. The study of contemporary themes and issues in criminology and sociology will guide you to choose a career that challenges you to make a difference.
