Program description

The programme builds from two core modules. The first Contemporary Issues in Criminal Justice will develop your knowledge and understanding of the workings of the criminal justice system and the principles that underpin its operation. You will examine and evaluate the role played by individuals and agencies in both policy and practice, a process aided by the guest speaker inputs from criminal justice professionals and by teaching staff providing sessions on their areas of expertise. The second, Researching Crime and Criminal Justice, encourages us to appreciate the contributions research has made, and continues to make, to Criminal Justice policy and to criminological theorising more generally. On a practical level the research training built into the module not only equips you with a set of highly transferable skills but also helps you to develop an appreciation of the challenges of designing, conducting and delivering original research. In this way the module links in with the structured programme of supervisor support and input that runs throughout the entirety of the course to help you organise and manage the completion of your dissertation. The final and defining piece of the Masters programme is the completion of a 20,000 word dissertation, the space in the course for you to make your own unique contribution to knowledge. To support this process we have a structured programme of research training and supervisor input that will support you from the design to the completion stage of the project. These staff, and all who teach on the programme, have qualifications to PhD level in the fields of Criminal Justice, Criminology, Law and/or have worked as professionals/practitioners in the criminal justice system.
