This programme offers an exciting opportunity to understand contemporary issues concerning the interface between security and justice from the perspectives of Law, Sociology and Politics.
The blend of disciplinary approaches offers a comprehensive programme through which international and local conflicts over security and justice are analysed, transnational security concerns and crimes are studied and research methodologies in international and comparative criminal justice are examined.
The course adopts a seminar-based format, offering the opportunity to consider both theoretical and empirical aspects of security and justice and to apply knowledge to case study examples.
You will gain knowledge about well-accepted approaches to security and justice alongside exploring about how contemporary concerns challenge some of the traditional approaches to this field.
This programme will equip you with the skills and knowledge to enter into further academic research and to pursue professional careers in the Civil Service, media and publishing, teaching and training, policy, international agencies and the fields of security and policing.
Vocational posts in organisations such as, the United Nations, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the armed forces are also potential destinations for graduates.
