Safeguarding and Security MA (Full-time)London Metropolitan University
Safeguarding and Security MA (Full-time)
Our Safeguarding and Security MA will offer you the opportunity to study in an established and interdisciplinary environment. You'll develop a strong conceptual framework for exploring contemporary safeguarding issues at theoretical and practical levels.
This course will provide a valuable continuation to undergraduate study of sociology, criminology, psychology and related disciplines, allowing you to apply your academic knowledge in an arena of current and controversial debate.
Our MA course will familiarise you with the contemporary debates and policy initiatives surrounding the identification and protection of vulnerable populations. The course will guide you through the factors that lead to societies constructing and recognising categories of vulnerability, eventual legislative responses and practical protection. You'll reflect critically on the identification of people and populations who are most at risk and gain an understanding of the relevance and practicality of resilience strategies.
This course will enable you to view a range of adult and child safeguarding interventions from the perspectives of cultural violence to the criminalisation of the vulnerable. You'll understand how social inequalities and health care problems impact on vulnerable populations and learn to employ research methodologies for evaluation of violence and institutional abuse.
You will be required to have:
- a minimum of a lower second class (2.2) honours degree in a relevant discipline of social sciences such as criminology, sociology, law or psychology or possess relevant professional qualifications.
- a basic Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
Applications are also welcome from those who have experience working in the criminal justice system.
