Bachelor in Sociology and Criminology - Grado en Sociología y Criminología

Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities - University of Westminster


The study of Sociology and Criminology has never been more important, in the current climate of fear and anxiety about crime, the breakdown of traditional structures and ways of life and the challenges of living in a global society. These two disciplines are ideally placed to help you understand the modern world, and specifically how we as a society relate to those whose behaviours we regard as deviant.

Central to sociology is a critical examination of the influence of class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality in our societies, while criminology focuses on how each affects what happens to individuals in the criminal justice process. Sociology and criminology share theoretical frameworks that inform analysis, and draw on the same kinds of research methods.

Our graduates have gone on to pursue a diverse range of careers, and the emphasis on professional development within the programme means that students are well equipped for the changing job market.
