The MA in Criminology consists of core modules in criminological theory, the study of the justice system, training in research skills and methodology, and provides students with the opportunity to undertake optional modules in a range of specialised areas including criminal law, criminal psychology, desistance – the route out of crime, policing and the governance of security, studies in victimology and crime prevention, and youth offending & youth justice perspectives.
