Course content

What role should criminal justice agencies play in rehabilitation? How should we manage individuals who have committed a crime? You’ll learn how to question the theory, policy and practice of managing offending behaviour.

This Masters, which is delivered entirely online, is perfect if you currently work in probation, prison, youth justice, policing or community settings. Or, if you’re ready to launch your career, we’ll give you a competitive edge.

Develop expertise in the issues professionals are facing while working in this challenging area. Explore the processes, contexts, risks and protective factors behind criminal behaviour.

You’ll look at the complex web of power connecting crime, law and order. See how offender management is affected by the police, courts and prison system and conduct your own research in an area that interests you.
