Can anybody who studies criminology tell me what the course is like? Is it boring? Difficult? Interesting?

I am not bothered if it is difficult as I don't mind hard work, but I'm worried that I will find it boring as I don't enjoy my current sociology work (crime and deviance). Can anyone help?! I'm looking at going to Derby or Nottingham

I don't actually do Criminology at University, but I do criminology in psychology at a2 and I guess it would be more science based and practical than essay writing I really enjoy it but it's more towards wy criminals do what they do and the thoughts behind it.

Its interesting, a lot of theory. It's most like sociology at A-Level, with theories and such.

Different courses have different modules but my course is primarily theory. There's little science (unless you count bio-social theories), so maybe you should look for different courses if you don't enjoy sociology, maybe a BSC Psychology course with a lot of forensic psychology modules or maybe a forensic psychology course?

A large component of criminology is sociology as it is the 'mother discipline'.

Thank you for the advice I really enjoyed the family module of sociology at As but this year I really dislike sociology :mad: I'm eight weeks into my term and the student teacher we have has only done research methods with us and no actual crime and deviance. I guess I'll have to have a think
