Course summary

The Department of Criminology has specialists in research around five key themes:

  • Fraud, white-collar and organised crime;
  • Prisons, punishment and policing;
  • Inequalities connected to offending and victimisation;
  • Violence and its aftermath;
  • Drug markets, consumption and policy.
The School welcomes applications that fit with the particular specialisms of our research staff. For example, we currently have grants in the areas of desistance, fraud, drugs, cryptomarkets, modern slavery, corruption, organised crime, policing and punishment, amongst others. In addition, there is extensive expertise in a range of methodologies including:
  • biographical and narrative approaches to interviewing;
  • ethnography;
  • psychosocial case analysis;
  • network analysis;
  • deliberative methods;
  • qualitative and quantitative longitudinal research;
  • survey design and applied statistical analysis;
  • programme evaluation;
  • historical and policy analysis.
You will therefore have access to cutting edge approaches to researching criminological issues.
