London Metropolitan University

Crime, Violence and Prevention

This course will appeal to practitioners and students interested in careers in a range of professions such as policing, probation, prison service work, social work and many new areas in third sector and private sector security and outsourced support for offenders, vulnerable adults and young people. A broad-based programme in public protection would enable you to pursue your particular interest be it in domestic violence, terrorism, dangerous offenders or child protection. London Met hosts the London Practitioner Forum which brings together practitioners across the capital in criminal justice and beyond to discuss contemporary research and practice issues. As part of the course you will have the opportunity to be involved in a one-week exchange programme with an American university where you'll explore criminal justice agencies and meet a range of practitioners.

Entry requirements

You will be required to have a relevant undergraduate degree in criminology, social or behavioural sciences, specific experience related to crime and the criminal justice system (CJS) such as police or probation work, and relevant professional qualifications. All applicants must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. Applicants who require a Tier 4 student visa may need to provide a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.

Course modules

This course consists of five core modules: Understanding Public Protection and Risk, Crime Control and Community Safety, Criminological Research Methods, Crime and Offender Patterns and the Criminological Dissertation on a topic of students choice.

There are opportunities to specialise in areas of your interest when choosing the two optional modules. These modules include Terrorism/Counter Terrorism, Domestic Violence, Critical Issues in Criminal Justice, Psychology and Crime and other more specialist research modules.

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed through essays, seen examinations, practical research methodology assignments, an extended thesis (12,000-15,000 words) and various formative presentations to class peers.
