Criminology

**Why choose this course** Through criminology we study the issues of crime, deviance and criminal justice that are at the heart of our society. On our MSc Criminology we've combined modules in academic criminology and the criminal justice system with training in qualitative and quantitative research methods. Our world-renowned criminological expertise and unique emphasis on research methodology will sharpen your ability to think in a logical and informed manner about criminological problems, and to design, conduct and manage effective research and evaluation. **What you will study** The combination of analytic criminological knowledge and applied research skills on our course will equip you with a sophisticated understanding of the most important challenges and perspectives in contemporary criminology. Our MSc Criminology has been designed for graduates and practitioners with an appropriate first degree who seek advanced knowledge about issues connected with crime, deviance, control, the criminal justice system and social research. This degree also has two new pathways - cybercrime and cybersecurity and corporate crime and corporate responsibility. These degrees also suit graduates and practitioners considering a PhD in this area; and practitioners in the criminal justice system and related government and security and voluntary agencies who wish to develop their understanding of the wider issues connected to crime.
