    Description

    Our BA Sociology and Criminology is taught by our criminologists within our leading Department of Sociology. We allow you to combine the specialist study of criminology with the broad study of sociological questions around power, nation-states, identity and social change as well as to study crime, criminals and criminal justice within wider social contexts. You engage with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today like: how should we prevent crime? How and why should we punish? How does criminal justice connect with social justice?

    You take Introduction to Crime, Law and Society as a foundation to the subject, Sociology and the Modern World, which explores how social scientists have theorised major social changes, and Researching Social Life, which introduces different research methods. There are a range of optional modules available. In your second and third years, you take a combination of criminology and sociology modules.
    We teach through large-group lectures and smaller-group seminars and classes. You contribute in many ways, for example, by analysing set readings, giving presentations or completing research tasks. Some modules have their own websites where you can download powerpoints and podcasts, and contribute to online discussions. One module - Crime, Policy and Social Justice requires you to undertake consultancy-style evaluations of real-world criminal justice practice.

    Criminologists engage with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today like: how should we prevent crime? How and why should we punish? How does criminal justice connect with social justice? Our course is taught by criminologists within the UKs leading Department of Sociology, who are experts in youth crime, prison, terrorism, policing, drugs, gender and crime, crime and the media, trafficking and human rights. A criminology-linked qualification can lead to a career in the criminal justice system or in other areas such as project management, policy evaluation or lobbying.

    Course Content

    In all three years you will have 90 credits of compulsory modules and 30 credits of optional modules. For BA Criminology your optional modules can be chosen from across the faculty in first year and from within our Department of Sociology in your second and third year. There is a great deal of choice for these optional modules due to the extensive range of modules offered by our departments. In your final year, as part of your compulsory 90 credits you must take a dissertation, a research project on something which is of interest to you.
    With a small number of exceptions, if you successfully complete the first year of your BA, then you are qualified to enter the second year of that course and a range of other courses: for example, if you take economics, politics, philosophy and sociology, then you have a choice of at least nine possible single or joint honours courses at the end of your first year. This means you can change your course, providing you have taken the appropriate pre-requisites and places are available.
    We operate a credit framework for our awards, which is based on principles widely used across the UK university sector. Each module has a credit rating attached and our standard three-year course consists of 360 credits (120 credits in your first year, and 240 credits across your second and final years).

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
