BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* (*Subject to approval)

Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Foundation Year* is a four-year degree. The teaching team includes practising criminologists at some centres. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of cutting edge criminological and sociological theorising and will be able to apply this to current socio-economic policies and conditions. In order to achieve this, students will develop a critical understanding of criminology and sociology in relation to current issues such as urbanisation, embodiment, family, globalisation, marginalisation and migration. Criminology and Sociology will be considered from a fresh perspective using feminist, critical, cultural, and race critiques to revisit societal issues. The course is aimed at students who may not be served by the current sociology/criminology degree courses in research-led universities. The first year is a Foundation Year, which students study alongside our LLB (Law) students and is taught by our law tutors. This year focuses on developing the key skills required to undertake a degree-level study, both academic and legal/professional related learning. The subsequent three years then follow our full-time BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology course*.... [-]

Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes and is traditionally a popular field of study. By the very nature of the profession, psychology is a service vocation. This fits well with Waldorf’s mission of preparing students for “lives of service.” A Bachelor’s degree in psychology prepares students to be well-rounded, educated individuals as it reflects many of the goals of a liberal arts education by providing a knowledge base, thinking skills, analytical reasoning, interpersonal skills, and ethical values. Psychology majors are prepared to pursue graduate and professional programs in psychology, where they could further specialize in a variety of areas in psychology including clinical, experimental, developmental, social, cognitive, human factors, sports, industrial/organizational, health, and forensics.

Travel into the human psyche

Psychology is the science of human emotion, thought and behavior, including neural, physiological and cognitive processes; developmental factors and individual differences; and interpersonal, international, and cross-cultural components. The Psychology major is designed to expose students to a spectrum of basic issues currently being addressed in the discipline, the principles of research design and statistics, and theory and research in specific areas of psychology. A bachelor's degree in Psychology provides preparation for graduate study for a career in psychology, and a major or minor may be paired with further training in law, education, business, social work or other health-related professions. Students with this major or minor have also pursued careers in business, healthcare, social services, communications, social media, education, human resources and other fields since psychology coursework provides the knowledge of human behavior, analytical thinking, communication and teamwork skills, as well as the sensitivity and comfort with diversity sought by employers. The psychology major at Franklin University may be completed on campus or in conjunction with a Franklin partner institution. For students interested in an intensive laboratory experience, a semester abroad during the spring semester of the third year of study is strongly recommended. Selection of coursework and research experiences at the partner institution is completed in conjunction with the Franklin psychology advisor and approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs. The current partner institution is Southern Methodist University (S.M.U.) in Dallas, Texas. Students may also choose to fulfill the requirement at another institution in close... [-]
