Course content

Overview

Criminology can be described as the study of crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. The MA in Comparative Criminology and Criminal Justice gives students the opportunity to develop a specialist knowledge of debates around crime causation and control, within a comparative and international context. Students undertake a wide variety of modules which aim to combine theoretical concepts with real-world problems such as terrorism and organised crime.

As a student in Maynooth you will be part of our vibrant community of students and scholars working in the fields of criminology and criminal justice. Our expert academic team, drawing on their extensive research and professional experience, deliver an interdisciplinary programme with a strong emphasis on enhanced research skills. These skills are highly sought-after by employers in the area. There is a strong focus on employability throughout the programme, including opportunities for student placements with criminal justice organisations and civil society.

In addition to the range of optional modules, the core modules were essential to the development of my research and oral presentation skills. Unlike other postgraduate degrees, this MA boasts entire modules specifically designed to expand students' research skills. The range of diverse backgrounds of those attracted to the study of criminology meant that topics in class could be discussed from various approaches, whether it be legal, sociological, anthropological, philosophical etc. 

This MA prepares you for whatever you want to do after graduation, whether that be further research, or entering the workforce."
