We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This is for you if... you want to combine academic criminological study with employability modules and the change to undertake a work placement and practice-based research project in a criminal justice or related setting.
By taking our Criminology in Practice MSc, you can combine the theoretical analysis of criminology with a core spine of employability-focused modules. Our modules will cover the key issues in contemporary criminological theory and practice. Further bespoke modules will prepare you to undertake a six-week work-based placement in a criminal justice or related setting. As part of the placement you will develop an appreciation of the interplay between research and practice in Criminology and will conduct a supervised piece of criminological research.
