The Course

Summary

The Masters degree in Criminology is designed specifically to let you explore these and related topics in depth. You will be encouraged to challenge established wisdom while studying the intellectual canon of the discipline. The Criminology Masters at Liverpool Hope is a way of becoming a participant in criminological debate and analysis, whilst being supported in gaining an in-depth and critical understanding of the traditions and latest developments of the discipline. At Liverpool Hope we are driven by a desire to not just be passive observers of criminological, social and criminal justice issues but to be active participants in it. This means that we pay special attention to the interests and goals of our postgraduate students who wish to pursue their studies here.

The MA Criminology will enhance the career development and prospects of entering occupations such as social work, public sector welfare work, probation service, teaching, journalism, local and national government, social research, charity/voluntary sector, campaigning and non-governmental organisations. Graduates will also have developed the skills in research and communication and in critical and flexible thinking that are sought after by a wide range of employers. This postgraduate qualification will enable graduates to embark on a research degree or PhD programme.
