Combine two unique subjects in this joint honours degree delivered by a world-class university - we are listed 2nd in the UK for French in the 2017 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. You will acquire high level language skills and a thorough understanding of France’s historical, cultural, social and political background. And you’ll engage with contemporary debates on crime, deviance and punishment while critically appraising cutting-edge criminological research. Taught by world-leading, research-active academics from our prestigious Law School and the Department of Languages, our unique approach to your first year introduces you to topics including drugs and crime, youth justice, sex offending, and the cultural context of the French language. Year 2 is your chance to build on your language skills and study the culture, politics and history of the French-speaking world in more depth. You will also explore the ways that crime is measured and engage with the social and legal responses to crimes against the environment. Your third year, a compulsory year abroad, provides you with a rare opportunity to develop your language and criminological skills in a new global context. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement.
