**What will I study?**

**Criminology**
The study of crime is a fascinating area to delve into. During your degree, you will begin to think like a criminologist, by unpicking the theories that seek to explain types and trends of crime and how society and the police choose to deal with them.

You will use quantitative research methods to inspect topics such as victimology where you will explore the psychological effects of crime victims, and criminal profiling where you will investigate what makes a criminal and how can you identify them.

This course will introduce you to many fascinating theories and practices within the subject of crime. You will be debating a range of thought-provoking ideas and working on assignments that reflect both crime prevention and critical issues that surround crime.

**Modern History**
Looking to the past is essential in beginning to understand the way of the modern world. Recent history has seen devastating world wars, new technologies and shifts in world powers. By studying modern history with us, you will start to uncover a number of interesting topics and events that continue to shape the world we live in.

Our modern history degree covers topics as diverse as the Victorians, sexualities and politics. Along the way, you will also discover how to understand and research the past in great depth.
