Course Content Course structure

The BA Criminology with Quantitative Research is carefully designed to take you from a basic level, with no assumed prior knowledge of quantitative methods, to a complete package of practical quantitative skills, all while gaining a thorough grounding in criminology.

In Stage 1, you complete introductory quantitative modules, which teach you the methodological and technical foundations which you will build on in later years. You will also learn to think like a quantitative researcher, developing a critical eye for statistics and data analysis, both in academic research and the world around you.

In Stage 2, you move on to more advanced quantitative techniques, building on the foundations you have learnt in Stage 1, to develop an advanced skillset in quantitative methods that is extremely rare in graduates from non-mathematical disciplines.

In Stage 3, you apply what you have learnt in either a quantitative work placement or a quantitative research dissertation. Here, you hone your skills in a practical setting, gaining vital workplace or research experience, and demonstrating to employers that you can apply your skills to real life problems.

All of this is completed alongside a complete grounding in criminology, with scope to specialise with advanced optional criminology modules in Stages 2 and 3.

The course structure below gives examples of the kinds of modules you can expect to take during the programme. This listing is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year in response to new curriculum developments and innovation.
