Criminology and Sociology - BA (Hons)
I am a highly ambitious BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology graduand, studying at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, in which I am expected to achieve a 1st class grade. I recently completed a primary-based research dissertation as part of my third-year modules. This involved gathering public perceptions through a self-completion questionnaire, fuelling a discussion around gender equality, misogynistic harassment and the current legislation which surrounds these societal issues. Originally focused upon producing a criminology-based dissertation, I later realised that the topics I intended to research further were more suited to a sociological study, and as a result, decided to take a sociological approach.
Because of this in-depth research, I have applied to further my understanding and knowledge of the subject through postgraduate study, specifically focusing on sociology and research methods. Inspired by my third-year major project, I am keen to conduct similar research during my Master's qualification. My future ambitions beyond university include pursuing a career within the field of sociology, particularly in relation to crime and the legal system.
