**About this course**

This degree offers a broad understanding of the social world, from everyday behaviour to the operations of institutions and social groups, both locally and globally. This gives you an excellent base on which to study criminology.

You’ll study the criminal justice system in England and Wales, social theory, and how it relates to the real world. You’ll explore policing and punishment, and choose option modules based on your interests. Advanced modules explore the contemporary concerns of the social world. You may further your research skills through a criminological or sociological dissertation.

To place your studies in context, you’ll be able to volunteer for organisations such as victim support helplines, advocacy groups, justice campaigns and welfare charities.
