Departments in the School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences

Within the School we have combined law and social sciences under these departments:

  • Criminology, Politics and Sociology
  • Economics
  • Law
  • Psychology

We provide students with cutting edge local, national and international knowledge and practical experience in these disciplines. Our goal is to equip our students with theoretical and methodological tools necessary to understand individual and social group behaviour, and societal and state dynamics.

We ensure that everyone is supported to make the most of their studies through an active and engaging university experience. Our portfolio of undergraduate, taught and research postgraduate programmes are underpinned by a vibrant research culture, informed by the Centre for Research in Communities, Identities and Difference (CResCID).
