Course summary

The Criminology MSc is a research-informed programme designed to allow students to develop specialist, applied knowledge about crime and its control but also about how we understand and conceptualise the notion of justice. Through engaging with a range of modules, students will begin to question traditional understandings of justice and its application in contemporary society. This new and innovative programme builds upon Loughborough’s strengths and is taught by leading research experts from a range of criminological, sociological and psychological backgrounds with real world experience of the programme content. You will study bespoke content developed to align with our internationally recognised research in fields such as sexual violence, youth justice, sports criminology, psychology and the criminal justice practice, alongside material that develops a holistic understanding of criminology. Teaching on the programme is research led but student focussed. You will benefit from our strong links to a broad range of criminal justice and professional organisations. Studying with us will provide you with practical insights into current debates in the field of criminology, alongside transferable, employability skills which are embedded within our curriculum.

Assessment method

You will be assessed through coursework, presentations, essays and reports. The final assessment is a presentation and a dissertation, based on an original research project carried out with one-to-one guidance from a supervisor.

Entry requirements

A 2:2 honours degree with 55% or above (or equivalent international qualification), in Criminology or a cognate discipline i.e., Law, Psychology, Sociology, Politics or Social Policy or equivalent international academic qualifications. Professional experience will be considered.
