Course summary

This new MSc in Criminology, Gender and Sexualities is the only course of its kind in the UK. Explore growing trends towards gendered analyses of crime and punishment within the field of criminology.

This master's course draws upon a wide range of perspectives to explore contemporary debates in criminology. You'll consider the impact of the #MeToo campaign, the implications of sexual consent, and how different legal systems deal with sex-trafficking and drug-related crimes. You'll also address how mainstream theory and research has addressed issues such as gender and sexuality.

A range of creative learning techniques will help you develop presentation and project skills to enhance your future job prospects. Graduates will be well-suited to NGOs dedicated to gender and crime, as well as humanitarian agencies, government and legal institutions. The course will also benefit practitioners in these fields who wish to advance their careers.

Teaching

You will be taught through a mixture of lectures and seminars. Sometimes you will be asked to lead a workshop for your peers under the guidance of your lecturers.

Assessment

You will be assessed via workshops, presentations and essays. Your academic project will enable you to conduct your own independent research under the one-to-one guidance of your supervisor.

Careers and placements

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

This course will appeal to those wishing to extend their knowledge of gender-based research within criminology. Graduates of this course can also pursue other postgraduate research opportunities at the university, including an MPhil or PhD.

Potential career destinations include third sector / Non-Governmental Organisations working in gender and crime; charities and humanitarian agencies; local, national and international government and policy-making bodies; and education.

Given the international focus, students may also choose to embark upon a career with the Ministry of Justice, the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, and immigration. The MSc may also be of interest to practitioners working within these fields.
