Course content

The MSc Applied Criminal Justice builds on students' previous criminal justice-related learning from undergraduate study and/or from professional practice. The programme's focus is on facilitating applied skills development within criminal justice settings including the development of therapeutic relationships, fostering professional relationships in criminal justice settings, approaches to exploring, understanding and addressing multiple needs, navigation of ethical and moral dilemmas, and effective problem-solving.

Teaching on MSc Applied Criminal Justice takes a blended learning approach with content delivered online and by blocks of face-to-face teaching in Lincoln, for example, at weekends or during vacation periods such as Easter or the summer.
