Criminology (MA/PGDip)


Course Description

This MA programme will help you to develop an advanced critical understanding of crime in its social context:

How and why certain kinds of behaviour are defined as crime
How societies respond to these and other harmful behaviours
How crime is experienced by victims (or survivors) and by society as a whole
How crime is represented or misrepresented in the media and popular culture

The programme draws on insights from subjects across the social and human sciences and the humanities, including sociology, law, psychology, geography, history and cultural and media studies. It reflects the nature of criminology as a fast-developing, inter-disciplinary subject concerned with understanding crime in its local, regional, national and international contexts in an increasingly globalised world.
