This course provides you with expert training in the latest methods and approaches used in criminological research. We're ranked 1st in Scotland and 3rd in the UK for Criminology (The Guardian University Guide 2021).

We cover the principles of collecting, analysing and reporting on qualitative and quantitative data whilst also taking account of ethics, reliability and validity. You’ll critically examine the theoretical foundations that underpin criminology and socio-legal research, as well as exploring issues with comparative research and developing an understanding of the relationship between criminological research and policymaking.
