Sociology with Criminology

Why study Sociology with Criminology?

Sociologists study human behaviour and its relationship to society. The United Kingdom has a population of approximately 65 million people. Each person is unique as an individual, yet together they manage to establish connections with one another. Sociologists ask questions such as:  how does a person’s ethnicity, gender, social class and age shape and influence what they experience during their life? How do societies evolve and change over time? What makes some societies thrive and be successful, while others deteriorate and experience chaos? Studying sociology allows students to explore the world, and their place within it. Criminology is a particularly popular component of this course, allowing students to explore how we can best understand crime, criminals and the way that the criminal justice system deals with both.
