Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Sociology with Criminology (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. Explore how societies are organised, and how people are united and divided. Within the context of modern forms of power, examine the nature of crime and criminality from a critical, sociological perspective. We live in a complex, global, mobile and technologically sophisticated world divided by inequality. How do we make sense of modern society, and how might we investigate crime and criminality? You will learn how to investigate how and why people do what they do and you will learn how social conduct is patterned and shaped. You'll look at how societies have changed over time, and the formation of the types of global, technologically complex societies with which we are familiar today. It is in this context that you will think about modern forms of crime and criminality.
