Exploring a range of contemporary issues and real-life case studies
We host programmes in sociology, social policy and criminology. Our sociologists, criminologists and academics in social policy explore topical areas such as crime, education, work and social inequality. This research informs their teaching so you will learn directly from specialists about these fascinating subjects.
