Globalisation and the digitalisation of society pose new challenges in the fight against crime. To respond to these challenges, our MSc International Criminology and Criminal Justice takes an international approach to the study of crime and crime control.
You will explore:
You will question how we define ‘crime’, at a local, national and global level, as well as the international and national responses to these types of crimes. You will consider the key challenges facing criminal justice and law enforcement agencies in an increasingly globalised context.
In addition, you will receive social science research methods training tailored to criminological research, learning to critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches when undertaking research on international crime-related issues.
This programme also offers a Professional Practice in Criminology and Criminal Justice module and provides access to placement opportunities to support your entry into an increasingly globalised job market.
