On Lancaster's joint Criminology and Sociology degree you'll be taught by staff who are active researchers, known nationally and internationally for their cutting-edge criminological and sociological investigation.
You'll explore some of the most contentious issues in contemporary life, looking beyond traditional views to consider how our ideas about crime, justice, society and culture are shaped by history, economics, politics and ideology.
In your first year, you'll examine the fundamental concepts of both Criminology and Sociology. In your second and third years you can really shape the programme to reflect your own interests, choosing from a varied list of optional courses from both disciplines. These cover topics such as Hate Crime, Human Rights and the State; Cybercrime; Crime and the Media; Youth Justice; Terror; Race Relations and Social Change. You'll also have the opportunity to carry out independent research and apply your new skills to real-world examples.
