The MSc in Criminology offers a unique insight into cutting-edge criminological theory and current real-world phenomena related to crime and punishment. The programme is open to graduates of various social science disciplines, and provides a multidisciplinary platform from which to engage with the complexity of contemporary criminology and to understand and critically assess the political, economic, social and cultural forces that affect crime and its control.

The programme will appeal to you if you have a keen interest in crime and criminal behaviour and wish to better understand the key issues facing criminal justice today. Not only will you gain advanced knowledge and understanding of contemporary criminological theory, you will also have the opportunity to specialise by pursuing one of four pathways, and learn cutting-edge research methods to enable you to complete a substantial, original research project.

Depending on your choice of pathway, you will be awarded an MSc Criminology (Criminology and Criminal Justice), MSc Criminology (Global Criminology), MSc Criminology (Gender, Sexuality and Criminal Justice) or MSc Criminology (Race, Crime and Justice).

Criminal Law and Criminal Justice (MA/LLM)

Security is a major contemporary preoccupation; criminal law and criminal justice are key responses. Our MA/LLM Criminal Law and Criminal Justice offers you an exciting, challenging and distinctive opportunity to explore and develop new critical perspectives on major contemporary national and international debates. It is ideal for legal and criminal justice professionals and practitioners.

The central focus of this multidisciplinary programme is the interface between criminal law and criminal justice. In addition to studying established critical and theoretical perspectives, the programme also has a humanities focus, which offers an opportunity for you to explore and engage with cutting-edge scholarship in the subject.

The MA/LLM Criminal Law and Criminal Justice is delivered by staff from the School of Law and its Institute for Crime and Justice Policy Research, and a range of visiting international scholars and practitioners.
