The MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice provides students with the opportunity to develop advanced analytical knowledge of criminological theory and criminal justice processes and outcomes. Building on learning at undergraduate level in criminology or a related subject area, it promotes and enhances a critical awareness of social science research methods and skills used to undertake real world research on crime, disorder and deviations from social norms. Students will be equipped with a broad range of learning opportunities in research design and methodology, enabling them to conduct an independent piece of critical research in a related area of their choosing. With a wide range of exciting contemporary optional modules, students will get an applied insight in to how criminology intercedes a number of other disciplines and helps to inform criminal justice policy and practice. This is a stimulating and demanding programme, involving intensive learning in small groups, overseen by subject specialists and experts in the field.
