The MA in Crime, law and Society is an innovative, interdisciplinary programme focusing on current trends and historical debates surrounding key issues of crime causation, crime control and regulation. This programme is particularly targeted to students who are looking to develop a critical understanding of contemporary issues in criminology and criminal justice. The degree is aimed at recent graduates looking to improve their academic credentials, as well as practitioners and professionals in the criminal justice field who want to update and broaden their knowledge in this area. Compulsory and optional courses allow students to engage with a diverse range of issues within contemporary criminological and criminal justice debates and the methods used to research them.
A prior degree in criminology is not essential but previous study of a social science discipline would be an advantage.
The programme is taught by an interdisciplinary team of experts from sociological, legal and psychological backgrounds using a variety of delivery methods: lectures, workshops, student-led presentations and debate, group work and individual research.
