Welcome to our Department

Prof Rosie MeekHead of School:  Professor Rosie Meek

"The Department is committed to achieving excellence in research and teaching.  We are a close-knit team of academics with a genuine interest in ideas and policy. We are keen to disseminate our findings to service-users and government departments, and have active links to, amongst others, the Metropolitan Police, the London Mayor’s Office, probation services, and charities. We have core research interests in the areas of risk, violent crime, victimisation, consumption and leisure, health, youth crime, and social inequalities. Our new LLB law degree explores the fundamental principles of justice, equity and equality within the framework of English and European law. 

We see teaching as central to the work we do in the Department.  Students can expect to be taught by researchers of international repute in their respective fields. Our students benefit from an intellectually-stimulating environment and small teaching groups. We are very proud of the programmes we run, and consistently receive excellent student feedback. You can find more information about our BSc in Sociology and Criminology here and our BSc in Criminology & Psychology here.   In September 2014 a new joint MA in Consumption, Culture and Marketing was successfully launched and our new LLB Law and MSc in Forensic Psychology both commence in 2015. 

We also provide postgraduate research supervision in criminology, sociology and psychology and welcome enquiries from prospective students with an interest in pursuing cutting edge research with us.

Please browse through our web pages or contact us directly for more information about our research or teaching programmes."
