Course summary

Criminology programmes are hosted within our Department of Sociology. We offer supervision that covers a wide range of topics and we take a global approach to the subject, with particular expertise in diverse regional settings. You will work with a supervisor whose role is to guide you through the different stages of your research degree. In some cases, you may have joint supervision by two members of our staff and where appropriate with staff from other departments.

The Criminology group is the largest in the Department, with 11 full time members of staff who have particular research strengths in:

  • crime and the media
  • drug use and markets
  • women, crime and criminal justice
  • green criminology and crimes against the environment
  • organised crime
  • prisons and rehabilitation
  • sexual labour, regulation and human rights
  • histories of crime, punishment and victimisation
  • security
  • surveillance
  • terrorism and counter-terrorism

Reflecting this, the Department is home to the Centre for Criminology, as well as three other research centres: the Centre for Research in Economic Sociology and Innovation (CRESI), the Migration Research Centre, and the Centre for Intimate and Sexual Citizenship (CISC). The Centre for Criminology runs seminars throughout the year, both by itself and in collaboration with others such as the Human Rights Centre. It also works with others on local, regional and national conferences and events.
