Course content

The MSc Criminal Justice & Social Research Methods offers excellent postgraduate training. You will engage with the ethical issues concerning criminology and criminal justice research and with the policies informing the design of research into crime, deviance and punishment. It opens doors to research careers in both the public and private sectors.

This degree, which is eligible for ESRC 1+3 funding, guides you through the theory of criminological and criminal justice research and develops your skills in the collection, analysis and reporting of qualitative and quantitative data. The integration of criminal justice and criminological modules gives you a broader overview of current research and allows you to engage in more specialised criminological and socio-legal studies.

Our Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, and the Centre for Child and Family Justice; these centres underpin our postgraduate teaching, which is research-led and research-informed. You will be taught by lecturers who are nationally and internationally renowned researchers.

Your core modules are Research Projects in Practice, Qualitative Methods in the Social Sciences, Quantitative Research Methods, Crime and Criminal Justice in the 21st Century, and Criminological Theory. You will choose one module from: Criminological Research in Practice; International Criminal Law; International Human Rights Law; International Terrorism and the Law; Gender, Sexualities and Human Rights; and Transitional Justice, Human Rights and Peace Building. A research-based Criminal Justice dissertation completes your degree.

Your postgraduate degree prepares you for research jobs in the Home Office, Probation Service, Social Services, and other government departments or voluntary organisations. You will develop the skills to undertake and critically evaluate criminological research, which are highly prized by employers. The analytical and communications skills developed through your studies also enhance your employability.
