Course summary

Course Overview

The Criminology & Criminal Justice LLM covers a range of criminal justice and criminological debates. It enables you to engage in more specialised socio-legal studies and offers the opportunity to explore discourse on international human rights, criminal law and transitional justice.

Our Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, the Centre for Child and Family Justice, and the Centre for International Law and Human Rights; these centres underpin our postgraduate teaching, which is often research-led and research-informed.

Your postgraduate degree can open doors to a wide range of careers within, and beyond, the criminal justice sector. Your degree could lead to jobs such as research jobs in the Home Office, Probation Service, and Social Services, and jobs within non-profit-making organisations, including the NHS, educational institutions and charities working with young offenders or victims of crime. You will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to critically evaluate criminological research, which can be highly prized by employers in both the public and private sectors. Whilst on the degree you will also have the chance to develop your analytical and communication skills which can help to build on your employability in and out of the criminal justice sector.

The LLM can also be an ideal stepping stone into PhD study and academia.
