BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* (*Subject to approval)

Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* is a four-year degree. The teaching team includes practising criminologists at some centres. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting edge criminological and sociological theorising and will be able to apply this to current socio-economic policies and conditions. In order to achieve this, students will develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues such as urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, marginalisation and migration. Criminology and Sociology will be considered from a fresh perspective using feminist, critical, cultural, and race critiques to revisit societal issues. The course is aimed at students who may not be served by the current sociology/criminology degree courses in research-led universities. The first year is a Foundation Year, which students study alongside our LLB (Law) students and is taught by our law tutors. This year focuses on developing the key skills required to undertake degree level study, both academic and legal/professional related learning. The subsequent three years then follow our full-time BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology course*.... [-]

Study two core Social Science disciplines for a joint honors degree.

Both Psychology and Sociology explore human behaviors – but at different levels. While Psychology focuses on individuals, Sociology looks at broader social issues that affect those individuals; such as poverty, inequality, and social injustice. These are examined alongside societal factors such as government policy and globalization. You get the chance to take the individual and the social together, to give you a balanced understanding of how society functions.

Political Science degree provides students with knowledge in three core areas of Political Science: political thought, political systems and public policy. Political Science is taught using a range of methods which reflect the international student body, whilst making the best use of emerging technologies. The study of political ideologies, theories and ideas is balanced against the practical study of policy-making across a wide range of themes and issue-areas, and political processes in a wide range of states and regions. Students enjoy a broad study of political thinkers and theories, whilst directly engaging with a range of practical policy issues, in many different national and regional settings. The British Politics course, for example, is partially taught in the Houses of Parliament.The degree also recognises the international dimension of political, economic and policy processes, and ensures students are familiar with the politics of the developing world. Students develop the methodological and technical skills of the social sciences, making the best use of new technologies and practices. The courses also ensure that students in other majors can gain a sufficient understanding of Political Science to help conceptualise the political dimensions of their chosen fields. The programme provides a background both for further postgraduate study and future careers, including work in government, international organisations, business, finance and the media. Students also take a range of optional courses in national, regional and globalisation studies, or addressing thematic areas of contemporary interest, allowing for specialisation within the degree according to student interest....

This programme allows students to specialize in the study of global politics while also incorporating courses from a variety of other subject pathways.

The study of politics addresses questions such as: Why do people vote the way they do? What is the difference between the ideas of different political parties? How is the operation of one political system different from that of another? Why is the international system constituted in that way that it is? Why do politicians behave in the way that they do? What do words such as 'democracy', 'power', 'freedom', 'rights' and 'liberty' mean? Responses to these questions are covered by the study of international politics, comparative politics, government and political theory.... [-]
