Criminology is the study of crime, explanations for crime and social reactions to crime. During the four year course, you will develop a clear understanding of the key disciplines which will inform your criminological studies, such as sociology, psychology and history. You will also develop your skills in research methods, including collecting and analysing both quantitative and qualitative data, and will have an understanding of the ethical issues in criminological research. As you progress through the course, you will gain theoretical knowledge of key criminological theories, issues in crime control and punishment, as well as specific forms of crime such as violence.

How You’ll Be Taught

The BA (Hons) Criminology programme takes an innovative approach to learning and teaching. Your lectures and tutorials will include activities such as debates, group discussions, presentations and case study analysis. Your lecturers will bring topics to life by drawing on their own diverse experiences of conducting research in Criminology and Social Sciences. There is also a high level of independent study in the programme.

There is a variety of formative and summative assessments in the BA Criminology (Hons) programme. You will complete assessed coursework such as essays, reports, reflective portfolios and media analyses. Other assessments will include poster and oral presentations and debates, examinations, multiple choice tests, project work and exercises requiring computing proficiency. Your final year honours project will allow you to demonstrate your research skills to the highest level of this award. You will be assessed on activities that require you to show initiative, critical analysis and research skills.
