Course summary

Criminologists investigate the causes, consequences and reactions to crime – and this course gives you experience of designing, analysing and evaluating criminal justice and crime control strategies.

With an interesting and varied curriculum, this programme has a very strong emphasis on applied knowledge and job market skills. This course is intended to create sophisticated criminological practitioners, able to navigate the realities of criminal justice and crime control, with superior experience, skills and knowledge of how to think, act and reflect criminologically.

This MA has a strong emphasis on communication, research, problem-solving, teamwork, and policy analysis. These skills will be developed through classroom discussion and debate, as well as through practical engagement with external criminal justice and community safety organisations. You’ll be taught by a team of expert criminologists from a variety of specialist backgrounds, including: law, sociology, psychology, history and politics.

What you'll study

Classes will be interactive, discursive, and task-based. There will be few traditional ‘lectures’, but plenty of workshops where you’ll be involved in planning, preparing and leading. With support from staff, you’ll have the freedom to shape the course of your learning and focus on your personal interests and career ambitions.

The course is flexible, teaching is blended between fortnightly 2-hour workshops interspersed with preparation and online support. Assessment is task-based and varied, and will include: Written essays, oral presentations, events organisation, engagement projects, research projects and problem-solving exercises.

You’ll be provided with a high level of support throughout your studies, and academic support tutors work with small groups to provide support and advice.

Future prospects

The MA in Criminal Justice and Crime Control aims to produce postgraduates who are versatile communicators, effective problem-solvers, policy analysts, and evidence-led decision makers.

Completing this course opens up a wide range of careers in the following fields: Policing, probation, offender management, prison service, community safety, crime prevention, private and corporate security, civil service, border agency, customs and excise, military policing, security services, legal professions, social housing, offender rehabilitation, youth justice, supporting people, crime analysts, victims and survivors support, local government, and retail and industrial surveillance.
