Course content

Please note, all course information including entry requirements relates to the 2022/23 academic year.

This course is designed for all those who want to acquire a thorough understanding of the more recent and often complex trends and developments in crime, criminal justice, and governance more broadly. Combining theoretical reflection and practical application, the course aims to provide you with an opportunity to specialise in the latest developments in criminology, criminal justice and governance studies.

The programme welcomes recent graduates (whether UK based or international students), mature students, and professionals in one of the relevant fields (e.g. police officers, prison officers, probation officers, social workers, lawyers, magistrates).

The distinctiveness of the programme resides in its multidisciplinary curriculum which is simultaneously rooted in the University’s combined honours approach to undergraduate teaching and interdisciplinary approach to research.

Information for international students

Students for whom English is a second language will need English language proficiency of at least 6.5 in IELTS, with 5.5 in each subtest (or equivalent).
