Study Sociology or Criminology/Sociology
The Department of Sociology at LJMU offers students a unique opportunity to undertake contemporary and critical programmes of study. Our taught degrees combine a friendly, supportive atmosphere with challenging and stimulating study, which build on our expertise, research strengths and areas of specialism.
These are interdisciplinary degrees that give our students the opportunity to look at social issues and crime from various different angles:
Sociology is concerned with how and why societies, institutions and practices of all kinds are organized as they are, change over time, and the likely impact of this on life and the environment in the future. C
riminology examines society’s responses to crime and justice in the context of everyday life.
