Course summary

This taught Masters degree provides a distinctive programme for those who are currently working with offenders in probation, prison, youth justice, policing or community settings, as well as those who are aspiring to work in the criminal justice sector. The course will foster the application of critical and analytical skills to the theory, policy and practice of working with offenders. You will develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of a core range of contemporary issues which are pertinent to offenders and the professionals working with them. There is a focus on the processes, contexts, risks and protective factors underlying criminal behaviour. You will also evaluate the role of criminal justice agencies in offender management and rehabilitation, including scrutinising the intersectionality of power in the responses of these agencies to issues of crime, law and order.

Career Prospects
What are my career prospects?

The programme provides ideal preparation for a career in any of the key criminal justice agencies, including probation, youth justice, prisons and the police. It is particularly suitable if you are aspiring to a future management role within the criminal justice system.

Equipped with detailed knowledge and understanding of offending, rehabilitation and desistance, you will also be well placed to pursue a career working with offenders outside of the criminal justice system, for example through community-based programmes, restorative justice, youth work and victim support.

Alternatively, you may wish to undertake further applied research in the management of offenders.
