Learning and assessment
Face-to-face lectures and small-group seminar work are complimented by off-campus visits to relevant organisations.
Academic work is assessed through a variety of methods, including essays, exams, presentations, and a dissertation.
You will be assigned a Personal Academic Tutor, who has regular and weekly drop-in slots available for you to discuss any issues related to programme content or study issues.
Appointments outside of these hours can also be arranged. You will also be assigned a personal tutor to supervise your dissertation.
Staff expertise in Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology ensures that programme content and delivery is research-led, contemporary and robustly informed.
We have an experienced, highly-qualified and strongly research-active teaching team. The programme will be taught by existing experienced staff with strong research records, who have published widely in sociology, social policy, criminal justice and vocational and professional subjects such as education and social work.
