Course content

As corporations acquire ever greater power and influence, understanding how they can engage in criminal behaviour, how best to regulate this, and what responsibilities corporations themselves have becomes ever more pressing.

On our MSc Criminology (Corporate Crime and Corporate Responsibility) we place strong emphasis on developing methodological skills appropriate to the study of corporate crime. This will sharpen your ability to think in a logical and informed manner about the problem, and train you to conduct effective research in this and other areas of criminology.

What you will study

Our MSc Criminology (Corporate Crime and Corporate Responsibility) will offer you a unique opportunity to develop a specialised understanding of corporate crime and corporate responsibility.

This is the first, and currently the only, MSc of its kind in the UK providing a combined approach to corporate crime and corporate responsibility. This innovative course will provide you with a solid grounding in the core theoretical approaches and the significant challenges facing this rapidly developing sector.


On the MSc Criminology (Corporate Crime and Corporate Responsibility), we offer you the opportunity to take four weeks of work experience during the Easter vacation. This will provide you with first-hand experience of large-scale and real-life research in action. In the past, students have found placements in criminal justice agencies like the police, prisons and probation services, in national and local government bodies, research organisations and in media and business. In some cases, the placement may be with research projects being undertaken within a university context, including the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey

Where the full period is not practical, as may be the case if you’re a part-time students, it’s also possible to take up the opportunity of a shorter period of two to four weeks, usually during the summer. Placements are not guaranteed, but our placement officer will work with you to identify possible placement opportunities. 


You will attend a residential weekend conference in November alongside PhD students and teaching staff. This will provide you with a less formal atmosphere for discussions concerning criminology, research and related themes. It will include lectures from eminent guest speakers and members of staff, seminars and small group discussions.

You are not required to attend the conference to complete the course, but it’s strongly encouraged. Students are not directly charged for attending.
