You will normally have an undergraduate UK honours degree (or international equivalent) in criminology or a related field, or a postgraduate diploma, or a professional qualification recognised as equivalent to an honours degree. It is recognised that non-standard applicants may be well-equipped to successfully complete Masters level study and applications will be assessed flexibly, while maintaining the necessary academic standards.
Months of entry
Our Masters programme in Applied Criminology has been developed to offer real world knowledge and experience, offering students the opportunity to consider criminology in practice, both in the areas of criminal justice and applied research.
Our staff team include former justice practitioners and researchers at the cutting edge of research and evaluation in areas such as youth justice, drugs and criminal justice policy. The experience and contacts this brings has given us the opportunity to develop a vibrant, applied curriculum including options of study in criminal justice policy, practice and theory, as well as the option of undertaking a placement in a relevant organisation. Students will also cover research methods and carry out their own research.
We have devised the programme to suit people working in, or wishing to work in criminal justice and related areas, as well as those looking for an academic career; there is no requirement that students should have previously studied criminology.
