Our BA Criminology with Social Psychologyis run by the Department of Sociology, which is rated top 10 in the UK for research quality (REF 2014) and is ranked among the top 50 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings 2017. Criminology demands critical engagement with some of the most pressing issues, decisions and dilemmas facing societies today. You critique ideas and concepts of justice, punishment and social control. Alongside this you examine how social psychological approaches to crime-related matters are becoming increasingly important in helping better-understand the interpersonal dynamics in crime control organisations as well as questions of criminal motivation. A social view of crime and control holds that these issues are best understood when considered alongside questions of power, resources, rights, (in)equality, governance and culture. Through our Q-Step Affiliate Status, we offer you the opportunity to develop your quantitative skills by taking a specialised degree pathway or receiving a student bursary to go on a quantitative work placement. Q-Step is funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
