Department of Sociology

We aim to build a global reputation for offering a distinct brand of policy-oriented criminology and sociology driven by world-leading methodological innovation. Our work will combat inequalities and champion diversity.


We are widely recognised for our field-defining and conceptually driven empirical research and its pioneering quantitative and qualitative methods work.


We work closely with businesses to give you have the opportunity to become a Professional Training placement provider with us and to train your staff with our host of day courses.
