Course summary

MA Criminology and Social Policy at Liverpool John Moores University offers critical approaches to the study of crime, social harm and criminal justice.

  • Learn from a range of experts in an interdisciplinary research environment
  • Benefit from excellent research-led teaching focused on the interplay of theory, policy and practice
  • Enjoy strong local, national and international links with academics, community groups and justice campaigns
  • Personalise your postgraduate degree via a research pathway, a work placement route, or a combination of both

The study of Criminology is not just about the institutions of the criminal justice system. You will be encouraged to take a critical approach that examines issues of power, inequalities and social harm.

This interdisciplinary MA gives you the chance to look at Criminology from the perspective of various other disciplines such as Geography, History, Psychology, Political Science and Sociology.

As well as developing your advanced skills in research and theoretical application, the programme places a strong emphasis on the implications for policy and practice. It includes a strong comparative component, encouraging students to consider some of the international dimensions of crime, social harm and state responses to them.
