Undergraduate Courses

Learn directly from the people who have done the research and written the books.

The Department of Sociology & Criminology’s undergraduate degree courses offer an understanding of the world that emphasises the interaction between individuals, groups and social institutions.

The BA (Hons) Sociology programme has a strong reputation for innovative teaching within the sociological tradition, from the long established to the cutting-edge of new approaches to understanding society.

Our BA (Hons) Criminology course is one of the most popular in the country and benefits greatly from the practical experience that teaching staff have gained working in the criminal justice system.

The flexibility of our degrees means that often you can choose a degree incorporating two subjects for all or part of your programme. More about Combined Honours programmes.
