The modules we offer are informed by cutting-edge research conducted by members of staff who possess expert knowledge in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
The optional year-long work placement develops both your academic ability and the skills and knowledge acquired in your first year of the course. It enhances your employability through first-hand experience in the field.
Why study with us
Our flexible and modular study approach allows you to build your own pathway to a relevant qualification.
You will be taught by members of staff with broad national and international professional and academic experience. They are all actively engaged in research, which will be incorporated into their teaching and associated learning materials.
Classes, consisting of small group seminars, are delivered on one day per week (daytime classes), so study can be combined with work or other commitments.
Graduates from the MA in Criminology may go on to professional roles in prisons, probationary services, youth justice, policing, NGOs and voluntary sector organisations such as Woman’s Aid.
Graduates enter careers in a variety of industries and the MA in Criminology and optional placement provides an understanding of issues relevant to these areas.
Applicants should hold at least 2:2 degree. Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits in the light of the nature and scope of the programme and if they have relevant experience or qualifications.
