This joint degree aims to offer students an introduction to the contemporary subjects of criminology and sociology. Teaching is informed by research and current social debate around issues of crime, justice and the social world. This course aims to enable students to develop their understanding of both subject areas and apply that knowledge to real-life issues. Students will have the opportunity to analyse the different social constructions of everyday social life in order to better understand the diverse groups and structures that make up modern society.
This degree aims to offer a range of modules, drawing upon the expertise of criminologists and sociologists in the School of Social and Political Sciences. In utilising staff expertise, this degree aims to engage in research led teaching, in order to provide students with the opportunity to develop an insight into innovative academic theories and practices. The modules are designed to advance studentsâ discipline specific knowledge and also provide them with the opportunity to develop a range of cognitive and practical skills. The programme is therefore not only designed to develop a studentâs specialist sociological knowledge, but aims to equip them with a set of transferable skills that may be relevant to further academic study and employment. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.

Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
