Combining two exciting and complementary disciplines, this fascinating degree explores some of society’s most pressing issues in relation to inequality, deviance and marginality.
Our course has been designed with input from the British Sociological Association and our experienced teaching staff includes qualified educationalists, active researchers and experts in areas such as race, gender, media, sexuality, sport, class identities, deviancy, punishment and crime.
We have excellent links with local organisations and employers, many of whom provide work placements, including the Citizens Advice Bureau and local Council.
Why Coventry University?
An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.
If you have a curious, analytical mind and are interested in crime and its effects on individuals, offenders and society at large, this course aims to engage you in challenging, often emotive debate around issues such as ethnicity, racism and sexism.
Underpinned by core sociological and criminological theories and research methods, our degree focuses on the impact of crime and criminal justice in a broad social and global context – its effect on individuals, families, communities and workplaces. We will draw on case studies from around the world, rather than exclusively from Britain, the USA and other ‘Western’ nations. Previously, we have compared issues such as refugees and patterns of immigration and integration in Gothenburg.
Our courses have been designed to provide practical work experience and equip you with a range of skills and competencies that will help set you apart from other graduates and make you attractive to potential employers.
Our Creative Futures Unit provides a programme of workshops, embedded learning, lectures, professional experience and one-to-one guidance that can help you develop the transferrable skills and enterprising habits required for a successful career.
Coventry University is committed to preparing you for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market. The University’s Careers and Employability team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.
