The programme offers students the opportunity to study criminology at an advanced level. The MA encompasses in-depth investigation of major theoretical and substantive issues in contemporary criminology from a critical perspective and within an international context.

Students aim to complete the MA award within 12 months of full-time study and 24 months of part-time study. Options also exist for students to defer the programme at intermediate stages with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma. The programme will appeal to those wishing to extend their knowledge of criminology, to explore alternative approaches/perspectives, and to broaden their understanding within an interdisciplinary, comparative and international context.

The MA will also be of interest to practitioners working in criminal justice; social care; crime prevention and community safety; youth offending and youth justice; forensics; child protection and victim support. These are also the career destinations for graduates. The MA programme follows the School's normal structure for level 7 degrees of core subjects, optional subjects and a dissertation.

Careers

Employment opportunities in criminology continue to expand, here and abroad, with a huge variety of posts in criminal justice agencies such as the police service, probation service, prison service, Crown Prosecution Service and the magistracy. Posts are also available in social care, crime prevention, community safety, youth offending and youth justice, forensics, child protection and victim support. 

Local and national government agencies and international governmental and non-governmental organisations also offer opportunities in policy research, public relations and specialist practice, such as working for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).

To ensure we deliver the best learning experience for our students, the structure and delivery of courses may change to reflect knowledge and industry standards. Course options illustrated here may not be available to all students and may not run every year.
