This course offers students the opportunity to develop a critical appreciation of the social sciences. The course is about you, your relationships, the world you live in and it will change the way you think. You will study criminology, sociology and psychology, which will enable you to understand the contemporary world and to apply knowledge to social issues and problems.

Themes you will explore in the programme include social identity, informal social control, social and personality development, globalisation, crime prevention strategies, psychology of relationships, research methods, psychopathology, prisons and alternatives to prison, formal social control, historical and contemporary issues in policing and anti-social behaviour.

During the programme you will develop a range of subject specific skills, competencies and transferable skills for the graduate labour market. If you want to develop a critical understanding of human behaviour, groups and society and be taught in small classes by an enthusiastic and dedicated lecturing team then this can be the course for you.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
