Mode of Teaching Delivery and Timetables Criminology

Given the context of the current Covid-19 pandemic restrictions and public health guidance the Department of Sociology and Criminology is committed to the safety and well-being of all students and staff and as much face to face teaching as is feasible within an evolving situation.

Teaching and learning on our programmes will consist of a hybrid model and include:

  • Face to face teaching and learning in seminars/tutorials for a small number of level one and two modules, and some postgraduate programmes (subject to prevailing public health requirements and guidelines).
  • Online lectures, tutorials/seminars and directed learning.
  • All learning materials to be made available online (this will include a combination of recorded lectures, PowerPoint presentations, online learning exercises and readings)  and staff will be available for one to one student consultation, as is our practice.
  • Students are allocated an academic advisor / mentor who is a helpful point of contact throughout their time in the department.
  • Those students unable to attend class due to illness, quarantine, or concerns about underlying medical conditions, will have online access to all classes including E-tutorials.  

Those students unable to attend class due to illness, quarantine, or concerns about underlying medical conditions, will have online access to all classes including E-tutorials.

Some of which will be fully online and others will involve face-to-face lectures and/or seminars. We can help you choose your modules at the beginning of the semester.
