Masters degrees in Criminological Anthropology provide advanced study of the human social condition in relation to crime and criminal behaviour. They analyse the social structures underpinning the causes of crime, as well as scrutinising crime prevention, and practise for the rehabilitation of offenders.
Specialisms related to this subject include Forensic Anthropology, as well as appropriate branches of Sociology and Criminology.
This subject area presents a range of specialisations for you to pursue, including Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Archaeology, Organised Crime, Terrorism and Security, as well as socio-legal research.
Training and skills in this field vary depending on your interests, but may generally involve lab testing, identification and analysis, as well as vocational experience such as excavation and other forms of fieldwork.
Professional prospects with a Masters in Anthropological Criminology cover all levels within the social justice system. You may work directly with investigators, in the forensics department of a local policing community; you may hold a higher position, working for special forces units or even the secret service.
Research in this field is highly sought after, swith opportunities to pursue a PhD after your Masters.
