What are the key ethical considerations concerning criminological research? How does criminological research differ from other social science research? And how does it inform policy formation? The MSc Criminology and Social Research Methods tackles these key issues in the field of criminology research and offers excellent postgraduate training.

This degree, which is eligible for ESRC 1+3 funding, guides you through the theory of criminological research and advances your skills in the collection, analysis and reporting of qualitative and quantitative data. Distinct in its integration of criminal justice and criminology modules, it gives you a much broader overview of current research in criminology and criminal justice, and of more specialised socio-legal research and debates.

You will be taught by lecturers who are nationally and internationally renowned researchers. Our Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, and the Centre for Child and Family Justice; these centres underpin our postgraduate teaching, which is research-led and research-informed.

Your core modules are: Research Projects in Practice; Qualitative Methods in the Social Sciences; Quantitative Research Methods; Crime and Criminal Justice in the 21st Century; Criminological Theory; and Criminological Research in Practice. A research-based Criminology dissertation completes your degree.

Your postgraduate degree prepares you for research jobs in the Home Office, Probation Service, Social Services, and other government departments of voluntary organisation. You will develop the skills to undertake and critically evaluate criminological research, which are highly prized by employers in the public and private sectors. The analytical and communications skills developed through your studies also enhance your employability.
