Course UCAS code: LM39
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Crime and criminal justice are major social and political issues. Studying Criminology you address questions such as: why do people commit crime? How much crime is committed? What causes crime rates to rise or fall? How can crime be effectively prevented? How should we deal with offenders? Sociology provides ways of making sense of a world undergoing unprecedented social change and uncertainty. The Sociology element of this programme provides you with an understanding of core traditions and contemporary developments in sociological thinking and research. It also features a range of specialist areas such as race and ethnic identity, sociological approaches to violence, terrorism and society, new media technologies, the sociology of health, sex and gender and the sociology of science and technology. Combining these subjects gives a thorough, yet broad understanding of the surrounding issues, concepts and theories.

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.

    I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.
