About BSc Criminology with Study Abroad

Criminology is a multi-disciplinary subject, drawing on different disciplines including sociology, law, social and public policy, history, psychology and philosophy. BSc Criminology with Study Abroad is an exciting course that gives you the opportunity to study criminology within a broader framework of policy studies.

The course will provide you with an understanding of crime and related social harms, and an analysis of public policy interventions that contribute towards a safer and harm-free society.

The course follows a similar structure to the three-year BSc in Criminology. However, at the end of year two you will be able to study overseas at one of our partner institutions where you will take units related to criminology or the broader social sciences, arts and humanities. For example at Linkoping University in Sweden you may study a unit on Swedish and the Swedes; at City University in Hong Kong you have the option of taking a unit in Mandarin. The final year of the course will be back in Bristol and is identical to the third year of the BSc Criminology.
