The CCJP MA program is a collaborative program between the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Department of Political Science. The program distinguishes itself from other MA programs in Criminology by having a strong emphasis on criminal justice and governance, while still providing students with the necessary background for continued studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science.

In addition to providing the appropriate background for continued graduate studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science, the program has a number of other benefits. First, the program provides students with the background necessary to enter into employment or advance their careers in the criminal justice system, either in a policy or administrative capacity for government or non-governmental organizations, or as front-line service providers (police officers, probation officers and corrections officers). Students might also find employment as instructors at colleges that offer criminal justice programs. Second, the program equips students with general tools in critical thinking, communication and methodology, which would be useful for employment or educational opportunities beyond the criminal justice field. Finally, the program aims to develop citizens and professionals who will be able to make and express thoughtful judgments on a range of important issues raised in the context of criminology and criminal justice policy and governance.

- Diverse learning activities and assessment methods across all modules.


The Master of Public Administration (MPA) is an internationally recognised professional postgraduate degree, which is a public sector equivalent to the Master of Business Administration (MBA). The course is targeted primarily at public service and third sector professionals. The content is relevant to both international students and those based in the UK.

The aim of the MPA is to enable learners to build on their professional experience by engaging critically with, and reflecting on, key developments in public administration in order to more effectively deliver public service outcomes in a rapidly changing environment.

The course is based on a philosophy of transformational learning and transformational change. Central to this is the role of public services in promoting social justice and equality. International examples will be used to provide thought provoking challenges to the way our public services are designed and delivered. Rather than reflect today’s public services, the state and society, this MPA aims to shape the public service landscape of tomorrow.

This MPA offers an excellent student experience and includes an innovative ‘leadership exchange’ element, working with the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations (ACOSVO), to enable all students to participate in an appropriate exchange within another public service organisation.

Teaching, learning and assessment

The MPA offers options for both full-time and part-time study which will fit with busy working lives. This is a multidisciplinary course, with the purpose of preparing students for professional roles in the public sector. As such the delivery draws on academic expertise from a range of backgrounds such as administrative justice, public management and social policy. The input of research active academics will be complemented with expert guest speakers and visits to key public administration sites such as the Holyrood Parliament in Edinburgh, Houses of Parliament in London, Parlament de Catalunya in Barcelona and the European Parliament in Brussels.

Teaching hours and attendance

The amount of contact time will vary depending on whether you are studying on a part-time or full-time basis.

Links with industry/professional bodies

The ‘leadership exchange’ element of the course is delivered in association with the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations (ACOSVO). We are also an institutional member of the Joint University Council’'s Public Administration Committee.

Modules

There is a range of core and optional modules from which you will need to complete 120 credits, plus the 60 credit dissertation module in order to complete the MPA. Module options include:
International Trends in Public Administration/ Gender and Equalities/ Leading Change in Public Services/ Workplace Learning/ Law and Public Administration/ Social Justice and Critical Perspectives on the State/ Information Governance and Data Protection/ Multilevel Governance in Europe.

Careers

In Scotland 21% of the workforce is employed in the public sector. This does not include the many private and Third sector organisations that help deliver vital public services. At a time of increasing pressure on public finances it is increasingly important that all those who support the delivery of our public services continue to develop their professional skills and knowledge. Our public services programmes support those seeking to develop these skills.

Dissertation

We place an emphasis on independent learning. This is supported by the University’s virtual learning environment, extensive library collections and informal contact with tutors and research staff. We consider the development of independent learning and research skills to be one of the key elements of our postgraduate taught curriculum and one which helps our students cultivate initiative, originality and critical thinking.

The dissertation is a significant piece of independent research that constitutes a synthesis of theory, method and practice in anthropology and is supported by an individual supervisor and the dissertation coordinator.

Previous dissertations and research projects as part of the course have been undertaken in partnership with DONG Energy UK, Haringey Borough of London, National Energy Action, Durham County Council, energy enterprises and community energy schemes.

Careers

This course attracts high quality applicants from all over the world and delivers highly-skilled graduates who are able to communicate across disciplines and countries to further environmental progress and energy justice. Graduates of the MSc will be in demand from industry, community organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations and governments around the world. Graduates have gone on to work in Energy justice organisations, local authorities, energy consultancies and further Doctoral study.

Student support

Throughout the programme, all students meet regularly with the degree tutor, who provides academic support and guidance. Furthermore, all members of teaching staff have weekly office hours when they are available to meet with students on a ‘drop-in’ basis. In term time, the department also has an extensive programme of departmental and research group seminars which postgraduate students are encouraged and expected to attend. The undergraduate Anthropology Society also organises its own visiting lecturer programme. We ensure that we advertise any other relevant seminars and lectures in Durham, Newcastle and further afield, and encourage students to attend relevant conferences.

Before the academic year starts, we provide information on preparation for the course. On arrival we have induction sessions and social events, headed by the Director of Postgraduate Studies and attended by both academic and administrative staff. Students also attend an “Introduction to Research Groups in Anthropology”.

Postgraduate study at Durham University

The MSc Energy and Society is based in Durham University’s Department of Anthropology in association with the Durham Energy Institute. Durham has one of the largest Anthropology departments in the world with 40 research active academic teaching staff working across the full range of the discipline. Our Anthropology department is ranked in the top 50 of the prestigious QS World University Subject Rankings. The overall QS rankings also placed Durham 54th in the world for citations, recognising the impact and influence of its research among other academics, and 31st globally for employer reputation, giving recognition to the quality of, and international demand for, Durham’s graduates.

Students on this course can become members of the Durham Energy Institute (DEI) community and can attend its wide range of seminars and events, benefitting from its extensive network of contacts in the energy sector. DEI ( http://www.durham.ac.uk/dei/ ) covers the spectrum of energy research from technological innovation, to the social, political and economic dimensions of energy. DEI addresses energy challenges collaboratively through strong partnerships with industry, international partners, governments, community groups and other academic institutions. This ensures our research is relevant, timely and effective.

The European Union Law track explores the constitutional, institutional and economic foundations of EU law, preparing students for a wide range of careers.
•EU Law trumps national law. It penetrates all legal disciplines, from administrative law to labour and criminal law: no field of law is unaffected by EU law.
•The LLM prepares for exciting (international) careers in private practice or public organizations in all fields of law. Students will acquire vital knowledge as well as the skills to apply those insights to concrete cases.
•Learning takes a variety of forms and includes lectures, seminars, interactive classes, presentations, and group assignments. The program is concluded with the completion of a Master's thesis.

Tilburg University?

The European Union, with its supranational powers, is interacting directly with the legal systems of its Member States in substantive as well as procedural matters. The EU is also playing an increasing role at the international level, creating obligations for its Member States. These developments are creating exciting opportunities as well as challenges - and a growing demand for professionals with the qualifications to address them.

Enthusiastic, highly-qualified teaching staff

All teachers on the program are highly qualified and enthusiastic academics with additional expertise emanating from their connections to international and European legal practice. Our classes are small-scale and characterized by teacher-student interaction. Well-known professors from other prestigious institutes as well as practitioners, enhance learning by giving guest lectures on specific issues. In addition, we organize regular Career Talks: a practioner that has made his or her career in a relevant field of EU law is invited to talk about his or her career path and work experience.

Ideal location

The Tilburg Law School is conveniently situated right between two of Europe's most important legal and political centers, making it the ideal place to study European Union and international law. Brussels is the seat of the European Commission, the EU Council of Ministers, the EU Parliament, NATO, lobby organizations, NGOs, and international law firms. The Hague is one of the world's largest hosts of international organizations involved in peace and justice. It is the seat of 'inter alia' the International Court of Justice, the Peace Palace Library, the International Criminal Court, and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, among others.

Interpersonal and professional skill development

Small class sizes and interactive teaching methods ensure a high level of participation by students during the program, as well as contact between students and their professors. Group-work develops students' interpersonal skills and team-mentality - essential for any legal career. Competencies are also developed in areas such as analysis, judgment, formulating statements, and presenting professionally. Extra-curricular activities such as study-trips, moot courts, and social events & drinks, further foster the interactive climate.

Latest research and most topical issues

The department of European and International Law and the Tilburg Law and Economic Center (TILEC( is renowned for its international publications, prominent international affiliations, cooperation with leading International Law Schools, and the national and international advisory positions of its core researchers. Students in the program benefit from this profile in multiple ways: latest research is continuously fed into learning, while students are confronted with topics and ideas from the forefront of legal and meta-legal research.

Career perspective International and European Law

The masters in International and European Law qualifies students to pursue challenging careers in legal practice and/or advisory functions.
Potential career paths include posts within national and international public administration, national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the diplomatic service, European and international courts, multinational enterprises, and advocacy.
Dutch students who have followed the Bachelor International and European Law and who have completed the course 'Civil Procedure and Dispute Resolution' (burgerlijk procesrecht en geschiloplossing) have the full 'civil effect'.

The Graduate Entry LLB (Hons) is a senior status law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three.

Who is it for?

This course is for graduates who have a proven academic track record who wish to gain a qualification in law either for legal professional purposes or to advance their careers in law related fields.

For students who intend to practise in law in the UK, the GE LLB Programme offers graduates the possibility of obtaining exemption from the academic stage of training over two years instead of the one year Graduate Diploma. Not only does this give students the chance to take electives in legal subjects but also gives them the chance to acquire work experience in the summer vacation.

The course attracts many international students, particularly Canadians who, once they graduate, are well on the way to satisfying the Canadian NCA requirements.

Objectives

The Graduate Entry LLB (Hons) is a senior status law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three.

You will have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in the core legal subjects as well as learning about more specialist areas of law. There is also the option of participating in mooting competitions to further strengthen legal and debating skills. Successful completion of this course qualifies you to progress to one of the two professional courses all UK lawyers are required to take the Legal Practice Course (LPC) for solicitors and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for barristers.

Teaching and learning

Students on the programme are taught in a separate cohort of Graduate Entry LLB students for the core subjects and together with the LLB third year students for electives.

Instruction in the use of legal materials, legal writing, mooting and in legal research (including use of electronic retrieval systems) is an integral part of the course. Students can choose at least three subjects in their second year from an extensive list of interesting elective courses. Tuition fees include textbooks in all of the seven core subjects.

Students have a wide range of extra-curricular activities to engage in such as mooting and client interviewing. The Law School also has an extensive pro bono programme with a Pro Bono Fair at the beginning of the year to inform students of what is available.

Assessment

Assessment is by a combination of written examination and coursework. Students have the opportunity in the second year to write a dissertation on a legal topic of their choice of 15,000 words instead of a taught elective.

Modules

Students are taught by a combination of lectures and tutorials, which in total consist of around 10 hours contact each week in year one, rising to about 12 in year two.

Career prospects

Most students graduating from the programme take the next steps towards qualification as a practising lawyer. In the UK, that entails taking either the Legal Practice Course to qualify as a solicitor or taking the Bar Professional Training Course to become a barrister.

For students who return to Canada to practise, that will require taking the examinations set by the National Committee on Accreditation to obtain a Certificate of Qualification.

Some students will enrol for an LLM programme, normally at an institution in the UK, and in the past students graduating from the programme have taken LLMs at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, KCL and LSE.

Students have also taken LLM programmes in Canada, which will also satisfy the requirements of the NCA. In the past a few students have taken an LLM in the US in order to be eligible then to take the New York Bar examinations. Students who have not wished to practise have entered careers in financial services, banking, with NGOs and in the civil service.

‌Policy-making in all sectors has become more data driven and advanced training in issues of data use, data sharing, transparency, and accountability are important for both the public and private sectors. ‌ Unlocking the potential of collecting, sharing and analysing massive amounts of administrative and economic, social and political information to bring economic and social benefits requires individuals trained in both policy analysis and data analytics.

The MSc in Policy Analytics provides training for graduates who want to develop the ability to apply data analysis techniques to a range of substantive and policy related questions.

The MSc in Policy Analytics offers rigorous data analytic training alongside a specialisation in a policy subfield (e.g. social and family policy, economic and public policy, environment, criminal justice, security). It equips students with the technical understanding of a range of data analytic techniques and the practical software and programming skills to implement these methods to address their own research questions. The programme is designed to enable students to carry out their own research and to equip them to pursue other professional research activities subsequently.

This MSc is an extension of the successful Q-Step programme training social scientist undergraduates in quantitative methods and is one of three data science MSc delivered at Exeter.
