This programme provides students with the expertise and skills to undertake and evaluate criminological and criminal justice research. This acclaimed programme has ESRC recognition as a Foundation Course for Research Training and is an essential step for students wishing to progress onto doctoral studies or pursue a career in research in the public or voluntary sectors. Combining core research skills with specialist criminology and criminal justice modules, this programme enables students to critically examine the theoretical foundations that underpin applied criminological research. Students will develop a critical understanding of research methods and their application as well as a range of transferable skills (presentation, critical reading and writing).
Compulsory and optional courses allow students to gain a broad knowledge of research methods and issues within contemporary criminological and criminal justice debates while the dissertation allows in-depth study in an area of interest under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
The programme is taught by an interdisciplinary team of research-active 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.
