The course has ignited a true passion for the things that interest and excite me. I’ve become inspired to explore and consider issues that I hadn’t thought about before.
Two of my biggest interests at college were criminology and sociology, so being able to combine these two subjects at Edge Hill was the perfect choice for me. I already loved Edge Hill and thought this course would be a great way to explore both subjects in depth, as well as broaden my future career prospects.
Criminology and sociology complement each other very well and there are numerous crossovers in the modules. There’s lots of transferable knowledge and terminology across the two, which is a huge help. It means I can properly develop my understanding and develop my thinking about the two subjects in tandem.

There have been challenging parts of the course, and there’s no doubt that having a real passion for what I’m studying has kept me motivated. I’ve enjoyed every minute.
Part of that enjoyment has been down to the support and encouragement I’ve received from my tutors and lecturers, which is priceless. I have a genuine admiration and respect for all my tutors. It’s inspiring to see the commitment they have to their research and expertise, and it massively enhances our learning experience to be taught by experts.
They’re also very approachable and always willing to give their time to help students do well. I have found that when you have tutors who have such an enthusiasm for what they teach, as they do at Edge Hill, it certainly rubs off on you.
