Description

The programme offers students the opportunity to study criminology at an advance level. The MA encompasses in-depth investigation of major theoretical and substantive issues in contemporary criminology from a critical perspective and within an international context.

Students aim to complete the MA award within twelve months of full-time study and twenty-four months of part-time study. Options also exist for students to defer the programme at intermediate stages with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma. The programme will appeal to those wishing to extend their knowledge of criminology, to explore alternative approaches/perspectives, and to broaden their understanding within an interdisciplinary, comparative and international context.
The MA will also be of interest to practitioners working in criminal justice; social care; crime prevention and community safety; youth offending and youth justice; forensics; child protection and victim support. These are also the career destinations for graduates. The MA programme follows the School’s normal structure for level 7 degrees of core subjects, optional subjects and a dissertation.
