Criminology has a long and distinguished tradition at Kent with its research base in the Crime, Culture and Control Cluster.

The MA was founded by the world-famous criminologist, the late Professor Jock Young. You are lectured, supervised and tutored by a team of scholars and researchers internationally renowned for their world-class teaching and publications and the semester you spend abroad further enriches your experience and widens your networks.

Criminology is an important part of the activities of the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR), which is one of the four top institutions of its kind in the UK. In 2012, we were awarded the first National Award for Excellence in Teaching Criminology by the British Criminology Society in recognition of our innovative approach.

The atmosphere of the School is informal and friendly and there is a lively and diverse postgraduate community. Regular staff/graduate seminars introduce you to the work of academic staff and research students as well as academic visitors, and provide opportunities both for sociability and for intellectual stimulation. The large number of academic staff and our favourable staff/student ratios mean that academic staff are readily accessible.

A key feature of the MA Criminology is its involvement in a Common Study Programme. The Common Study Programme is a biannual student-centred conference at which students are invited to present papers, meet students and staff from other countries and exchange ideas.

The School has international links with colleagues and institutions and our current Visiting Professor of Criminology, Jeff Ferrell is an example of this extended network. Professor Ferrell is based at the Texas Christian University, USA where he is Professor of Sociology. He is a leading proponent of cultural criminology and has conducted research on urban culture, graffiti and media.

Information on the Programme

The master programme Economics consists of 120 ECTS- (European Credit Transfer System) Points and is designed as a 4-semester full-time programme. It is a consecutive master degree based on a bachelor degree within the field of economics.
The Core and Advanced Section of the master programme economics contains 48 credit points. This area covers content-specific and methodological basics of micro and macroeconomics, statistics, econometrics and mathematics. These competencies enable students to comprehend scientific literature of economic science and furthermore to independently analyse economic problems on an advanced theoretical and empirical level. Students will be able to select modules on a research- and methods oriented level (Research Track Modules), which allows them to assemble a course package following already acquired knowledge, interest and training objective.
In the specialisation section, students choose two out of six different subareas (fields). In each one, 18 credit points with 3 specialisation modules have to be obtained. These fields reflect research- and application focuses of the faculty in the area of economics:
• Design and Behavior
• Energy Economics
• Growth, Labor and Inequality in the Global Economy
• Markets and Institutions
• Macroeconomics, Money and Financial Markets
• Public Economics
• Statistics and Econometrics
Students also have the possibility to have credits acquired during a semester abroad accounted for at the WiSo-Faculty.

The Supplementary Section serves as an additional section to develop a more specific profile – either by deepening and specialising or by diversifying knowledge. Further modules of the extensive course offer of the faculty from economics as well as from social sciences or business administration are available to students. Examples for modules are e.g. finance, corporate strategy, economic psychology or economic geography. This area covers 12 credit points.

Detailed information concerning the curricular design is available on our homepage in the area of “study”. Especially at the beginning of your studies, individual consultations will help to make the right choices over the course of the programme.
Since students have many options within their specialization area, an individual emphasis can be put on the fields according to the desired job-qualification.

Only the best for your career

In the M.Sc. Economics, students profit from the theory- and methods oriented approach of the WiSo-faculty of the University of Cologne that combines research and teaching with practice.

Graduates find possible fields of employment in specifically economic dominated areas of public institutions like ministries, central banks, agencies, and public authorities (like antitrust divisions or regulatory authorities), European institutions (like the European Commission) or international institutions (like the OECD, IWF or World Bank). Additionally, universities and research institutes as well as economic departments of private institutions (banks, consulting agencies, larger industrial corporations, organisations or the media) offer jobs for economists. Moreover, graduates of this programme are especially in demand in other areas of the private sector (like consulting agencies, investment banking or corporations of the network industry).

For excellent students „Master Doctoral Tracks“ provide the opportunity to start doctoral studies during the Master Programs. The Cologne Graduate School (CGS) gives further information and shows regulations for the application.

Take your professional future into your own hands and benefit from the theoretical and methodological approaches taken at the WiSo Faculty, combining research and teaching with practice and thus underscoring our motto: “Innovation for society".

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master’s degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course with study abroad develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in entrepreneurship that starts after the first semester.

Specialist modules cover the process and practice of entrepreneurship as well contemporary issues in entrepreneurship. You’ll develop your research skills through a dissertation or a master’s project.

In the second year of this course you’ll undertake study in another country. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness. Our exchange option will increase your experience and it’ll help you stand out from others.

There is no requirement to have studied business or entrepreneurship at undergraduate level.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Learn From The Best

Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. We are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide with double accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting.

Our staff are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading. The quality of our research, teaching and engagement with business were among the factors that led to Newcastle Business School being named ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Teaching And Assessment

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

During the second year you’ll spend a whole semester studying in another country which will take your international experience to another level. We organise exchanges at one of our partner Universities which will most likely be in Europe, but opportunities do exist further afield. You’ll study general business topics such as finance, human resources or marketing, with English as the language of teaching. There may also be studies related to the language and culture of the host region. On your return you’ll complete your dissertation or consultancy project.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on course work and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the master’s dissertation or consultancy project.

Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. You’ll use software such as ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your master’s dissertation or consultancy project and then discuss its development through to completion in the final semester.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project, rather than a dissertation, you’ll still undertake primary and desk research. Through your reading, reflection and research, you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

The course will give you a practical insight into setting up and running a small business. It will be possible to channel your learning into your own business during and/or after graduation.

In the second year of the course you’ll be extending your international experience and widening your knowledge of business topics. You’ll develop an inter-cultural awareness that will help you stand out from other job applicants. Our network of partners and academic links will make it easier for you to find the right university in the right country to suit your interests and aspirations.

A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more hands-on practical experience.

Your Future

By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to apply for graduate training schemes and graduate roles or to start your own business. Employers value entrepreneurial skills and are keen to hire graduates with entrepreneurial acumen, particularly for roles in consultancy, sales and marketing.

Some employers require completion of a two-year master’s degree and this course will meet their requirement.

If you decide to start up (or continue) your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.

Study Abroad

One of the key challenges facing any student planning to undertake a business-related degree is how to compete in the job market with business graduates around the world who are also trying to ignite their business career. We know from experience and talking to employers that international awareness is a key differentiator. Many of our students have already taken the first step by travelling hundreds or thousands of miles to study in an unfamiliar environment. However the international exchange option takes that to the next level. We are developing exchange opportunities in Asia, Europe and South America that will give students the opportunity to create a truly unique selling proposition to future employers. Students spend one semester studying business (taught and assessed in English) in another international domain. In some cases there will be an opening for basic level study of the language and culture of the host region.

Additionally the course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

In the second year of this course you’ll undertake study in another country for one semester. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness and studying abroad will help you stand out from others. Our partner institutions offer study related to the areas of operations, logistics and supply chain management and will increase your experience.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your master’s dissertation or consultancy project and then discuss its development through to completion in the final semester.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project, rather than a dissertation, you’ll still undertake primary and desk research. Through your reading, reflection and research, you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course has the credibility of being accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS). Such accreditation facilitates the process of gaining chartered status, which is associated with higher salaries and promotions.

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

In the second year of the course you’ll be extending your international experience and widening your knowledge of business topics. You’ll develop an inter-cultural awareness that will help you stand out from other job applicants. Our network of partners and academic links will make it easier for you to find the right university in the right country to suit your interests and aspirations.

A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more experience.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into graduate positions in areas such as operations management, materials management, purchasing and quality management. Roles of recent graduates include supplier quality manager, transport consultant, distribution services manager, e-commerce operations manager, freight account manager and logistics project manager.
