Course content

A course in criminology studies the issues of crime, deviance and criminal justice that are at the heart of our society.

On our MSc Criminology course we’ve combined modules in academic criminology and the criminal justice system with training in qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Our world-renowned criminological expertise and unique emphasis on research methodology will sharpen your ability to think in a logical and informed manner about criminological problems, and to design, conduct and manage effective research and evaluation.

Combining criminological knowledge with applied research skills, this course will equip you with a sophisticated understanding of the most important challenges and perspectives in contemporary criminology.

Our MSc Criminology course has been designed for graduates and practitioners with an appropriate first degree who seek advanced knowledge about issues connected with crime, deviance, control, the criminal justice system and social research.

This degree also has two new pathways – cybercrime and cybersecurity and corporate crime and corporate responsibility. These degrees also suit graduates and practitioners considering a PhD in this area, as well as practitioners in the criminal justice system and related government, security and voluntary agencies who wish to develop their understanding of the wider issues connected to crime.
