This course is ideal for students interested in learning more about how to use numbers and data within criminology. It provides training in practical and analytical skills, which will enhance your career prospects and provide you with a strong platform for postgraduate study. No prior knowledge of statistical techniques is required.
About two thirds of your studies will follow the Single Honours BSc Criminology course, where you will acquire core knowledge in your subject. The remaining third provides applied interdisciplinary training in quantitative methods.
By drawing on social harm perspectives, criminology at Bristol examines conventionally defined crimes along with other problem activities or behaviours that may not be criminalised but still cause extensive harm to individuals and society. This provides you with an excellent critical and informed understanding of crime and the criminal justice system, as well as wider social and economic questions.
In your first and second years you will take a range of mandatory units that provide a solid foundation in the subject and will develop your problem-solving and research skills, with training provided. You will also choose from a selection of optional units.
In your final year you will undertake your own individual research in an area of quantitative social science.
