    BA Criminology is taught by criminologists within the UK´s leading Department of Sociology. Students are taught through large-group lectures and smaller-group seminars and classes. Students contribute in many ways, for example, by analysing set readings, giving presentations or completing research tasks. Some modules have their own websites where students can download powerpoints and podcasts and contribute to online discussions.

    One module - Crime, Policy and Social Justice - requires students to undertake consultancy-style evaluations of real-world criminal justice practice. A criminology-linked degree can lead to a career in the criminal justice system or in other areas such as project management, policy evaluation or lobbying.

    First year students take Introduction to Crime, Law and Society as a foundation to the subject. They also take Sociology and the Modern World, which explores how social scientists have theorised major social changes, and Researching Social Life, which introduces different research methods. Optional modules include: Introduction to Media, Culture and Society; Sociology of the New Europe; Introduction to Politics; Introduction to Management and Discovering Psychology.
