BA in Psychology, Sociology and Criminology

This combination provides a unique path to the study of social behaviour. Rather than concentrating on experimental design and quantitative data analysis, this distinctive approach through psychology, sociology and criminology will allow students to study the social processes through which psychological issues are mediated: history, culture, language and communication. This degree will call to students with an interest in ethnographic and cultural accounts of crime who are also interested to understand the broader global socio-economic backgrounds of modern criminality, its regulation and control.

The programme investigates how social psychological topics, such as identity, roles, criminality, emotion and consciousness, are a product of the relation between the individual and society.

Students graduating with a BA in Psychology, Sociology and Criminology degree will be encouraged to apply for a range of posts including management, administration, human resources, housing, media, retail, public policy, education, the health professions, and the social services.
