Course content

This innovative course offers a unique insight into the global dimensions of crime and punishment in today's world. Exploring both cutting-edge criminological theory and current real-world phenomena, the programme provides a multidisciplinary platform for you to engage with the complexity of contemporary criminological challenges.

You will be introduced to theoretical debates about the relationship between global, national and local questions of crime and punishment. You will also learn about the range of research methods that are used to explore such questions. An internship option will give you first-hand experience of the reality and importance of the idea of 'the global' for organisations engaged in criminal justice and related work.

By insisting on a genuinely international perspective that looks at, but also beyond, the experiences of affluent societies that have characteristically dominated criminological scholarship to date, the programme encourages you to think broadly and innovatively about this dynamic, burgeoning field of study.

The course will appeal to those seeking to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the key theoretical and practical issues that have shaped and currently play a major role in influencing matters of crime and punishment from a global perspective.
