Mode of Delivery and Timetable:

Department of Sociology & Criminology

Welcome from Professor Maggie O'Neill.

The Department of Sociology & Criminology is committed to provide a high quality educational experience, offering our students as much face to face time as possible whilst keeping students and staff safe. To comply with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, the majority of our degree programmes will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2020-2021. This means students will engage in both online learning (live online events and pre-made online content) and on-campus learning (in-person sessions at UCC).  How each programme will be delivered depends on a number of factors including the discipline being studied, the class size, external accreditation requirements and of course public health guidelines.

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/workshops for a small number of level one and two modules, and some postgraduate programmes (subject to prevailing public health requirements and guidelines).
  • Online lectures, workshops/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 a mentor /academic advisor in the first year who is a helpful point of contact
  • 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-workshops.
