Criminology is a multidisciplinary subject comprising elements of sociology, law, social and public policy, history, psychology and philosophy. BSc Criminology with Study Abroad is an exciting course that gives you the opportunity to study criminology within a broader framework of policy studies. You will also have the opportunity to study at a partner university overseas in your third year.
The course will provide you with an understanding of crime and justice and related social harms and an analysis of public policy interventions that contribute towards a fairer, safer and harm-free society.
In year three you will be able to study overseas at one of our partner institutions, gaining insight into social science debates in another country and exploring the culture of a new city. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
The course follows a similar structure to the three-year BSc Criminology course. In your first and second years you will take a range of mandatory and optional units that introduce you to the interdisciplinary study of criminology and justice.
You will spend your third year at one of our partner institutions overseas, where you can take criminology or broader social sciences, arts and humanities subjects.
You will return to Bristol for the final year of the course, which is identical to the third year of the BSc Criminology course, and will complete a dissertation and further criminology-related units.
