Course summary

MSc Applied Criminology at Winchester explores the contributions of criminology to relevant professional settings. It reinforces students' understandings of key criminological concepts and methods, translates them to a variety of professional settings and provides students with both direct experience and enhanced understanding of these professional contexts. Applied Criminology considers crime, deviance, security and insecurity and addresses a variety of different criminological careers, offering modules relevant to three distinct professional pathways: forensic psychology, policing and security. In keeping with an ethos of active and engaged learning, students undertake advanced training in criminological research methods relevant to applied settings and gain direct experience through a work placement/internship or work-based learning opportunity for those students employed in relevant professional settings.
