This programme offers postgraduate study in criminological research with the aim of preparing students for careers as researchers (for example, in the Home Office, Probation Service, social services, other government departments or voluntary organisations) or for undertaking a PhD in criminological or criminal justice research.
The programme will provide students with a range of skills to undertake and critically evaluate criminological research as well as a range of transferable skills to enhance students' employability.
It will also introduce students to a set of theoretical resources relevant to the study of crime, criminal justice and crime policy that informs decisions about the design of research and provides critical analytical perspectives on applied research in the field.
