Criminology is the study of crime, the causes of crime and its impact on individuals and society. This unique new degree is designed to provide students with an advanced conceptual knowledge of Criminology and Psychology, an insight into the contribution of both disciplines to understanding key aspects of human behaviour and an ability to appraise the methodologies used in both areas.
In first year, you will study the following core modules:
- Introduction to Criminology
- Law & Society
- Introduction to Psychology
- Brain & Behaviour
- Introduction to Social Psychology
- Law & Crime
- Introduction to Criminal Justice
- Introduction to Penology

Optional modules can then be selected in Law, Psychology, Sociology & Social Work, Social Policy and Social Justice.
In second year, in addition to core modules, there will be the opportunity to select from optional modules such as:
- Race & Racism
- Gender Power & Politics
- Human Rights & Social Justice.
There will also be the opportunity to take additional elective modules drawn from disciplines across the university.
In third and fourth year, you will tailor your degree to choose optional modules in Criminology, Law and Psychology, as well as Sociology & Social Work, Social Policy and Social Justice.
In third year, students will have the opportunity to apply to undertake an internship programme or apply to study abroad.
In fourth year, you will be required to undertake a two-trimester core capstone research dissertation. With this, you will combine the methods and substantive training across criminology and psychology to produce a dissertation, under the supervision of academic faculty.
