The School of Social Science and Law

Sheffield Hallam University offers learning opportunities in law, criminology, psychology, sociology, social policy and community justice. Teaching is based at Collegiate Crescent Campus in one of Sheffield's leafiest fashionable suburbs - less than two miles from the bustling city centre.

Working closely with employers, professional bodies and other organisations, the has three main strengths:
· there is a strong underpinning of research and consultancy, so students are taught and supervised by experts in their fields,
· courses are flexibly designed and can be tailored to meet students' individual interests,
· cross disciplinary and applied work is encouraged to enhance students' employment potential.

Research Themes

Each subject group in Social Science and Law is strongly committed to research, and our successful results in the national Research Assessment Exercise have been encouraging. Social Science and Law has developed focused research through three research centres, which are:
· Research Centre in Community Justice
· Research Centre in Human Rights
· Research Centre in Human Behaviour.

In addition, wide ranging research in social policy links the School with the University's Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR).

A number of postgraduate studentships have been established and this will be extended, along with our commitment to supervising independent research students, whether full-time or part-time.
