    My guess would be that it was a competitive course and so they were unable to make you an offer for criminology based on your application, but felt that you would be suitable for a sociology course. When did you email them? If it was a couple of weeks ago you could try phoning them, but it can take a while to respond. You should also receive a letter in the post with confirmation of the offer and probably some more detail.
