Earliest start date
During our Criminology and Sociology distance learning course, you will explore the phenomenon of crime. You will explore its causes, consequences, enforcement and the social implications it has on society. Studying both subjects will give you an insight into the world of social values and behaviours, looking at crime in a wider social context by understanding how individuals and institutions respond to it.
Arden University’s online BA (Hons) Criminology & Sociology programme will give you the skills and knowledge to take the next step in your career in the field of criminology. Look deeply into issues of policing, police powers, and youth justice.
Arden’s flexible study mode allows you to study your degree while still having time for work and family. This programme will equip you with a sound understanding of the relationship between these two exciting fields and will help take you closer to your career goals.
