Course summary

Using our strong links with a wide range of bodies, you’ll be offered opportunities to collaborate on projects with organisations such as Gloucestershire Constabulary, Restorative Gloucestershire, community groups – as well as business partnerships active in crime prevention and reduction initiatives, and charities providing support and training around issues such as domestic homicide, stalking and sexual violence.

Participate in the work of one of our specialist groups: the Homicide Research Group, the Sexual Violence Research Group, or the Prisons Research Group. For instance, students in SVRG have reviewed historical case files on sexual offences for a police force, and contributed expertise to a local authority initiative on sexual violence service provision for men and boys. Working on such ‘real-world’ challenges can open up opportunities for your dissertation topic and your chosen career.

This degree also offers you the opportunity to join a residential field trip to explore a specialist theme such as community policing or restorative justice – recent destinations have included Belfast, Bosnia and Toronto*.
