Criminology & Sociology

Our criminology and sociology courses reflect the human fascination with how we live our lives. As a criminologist, you study crime as an individual and social phenomenon, explore criminal behaviour and the social context, crime control, state crime and criminal and restorative justice. With sociology you examine some of the most pressing social issues, such as rapid social change and social inequalities facing individuals, groups and policymakers. Using our academic expertise, we help you make the links between theory and practice in local, national and international contexts.
