Our specialist degree explores the changing structures of society through a sociological lens and examines how and why crimes are committed. Our academics are leading pioneering research projects to uncover new findings in the discipline.

Crime and criminal justice are central issues in modern society and our specialist degree enables you to understand them from a sociological perspective. You will explore the use of sociological and criminological thinking on everyday life events, beginning with the principal founders of the discipline: Marx, Weber, and Durkheim.

The specialist criminology modules allow you to examine areas such as crime and criminality; and media, crime and cultural practices.
