The MPhil in Criminology provides a foundational education in prominent criminological theories, research methods, and areas of criminological knowledge. Compulsory modules on criminological theories and research methods familiarise students with historic and contemporary criminological thinking and research. A variety of optional seminars are on offer each year covering a wide range of criminological topics. Topics explored in this programme include criminal justice, policing, crime prevention, organised crime, the sociology of punishment, the sociology of prison life, psychiatry and crime, developmental criminology, neurocriminology, social contexts of crime, and cross-cultural comparative criminology. The MPhil in Criminology does not require empirical research as part of the final dissertation and therefore does not include the practical training in analytical methods which is offered through the MPhil in Criminological Research.
