Course summary

This course is designed to generate critical thinkers and skilled practitioners who are equipped to improve criminal justice outcomes. You will be immersed in cutting-edge knowledge, techniques, and approaches. This will develop you to effectively challenge harmful crime trends at a regional, national, and international level, and tackle complex social issues like marginalisation, inequality, and impunity. The degree responds to growing industry demand for applied knowledge and practical understandings in areas such as crime prevention, designing-out crime, restorative justice, cybercrime, white-collar crime, digital forensics, victim support, and evidence-based policy and practice. If you want to open new career horizons, the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice is your professional gateway. As a dedicated and enthusiastic team of internationally recognised scholars, we are committed to critical criminology, evidence-based policy and practice, and investing in your personal, academic, and professional development.
