The Professional Doctorate in Criminology and Criminal Justice (or DCrim) is a 4-8 year part-time course.
In the first two years you would be required to attend taught modules. There are 5 modules in total, each of which is taught in 1-2 day blocks. Around this formal teaching, there are regular opportunities for face to face and e-mail support. In years 3 - 4 (and beyond where necessary) you would work under the guidance and support of a nominated supervisor to produce a 60,000 word thesis.
The DCrim aims to:
Promote an understanding of research evidence and methodologies relevant to professional practitioners
Develop a critical awareness of the policy context in which professional practice takes place
Enable participants to undertake a research study of relevance to their professional activites
The DCrim builds on the established and very successful UG and PGT provision in Criminology and Criminal Justice in the School to provide a specialist route for professionals and managers working in the field of criminal justice, or in related fields, who wish to embark on doctoral study located within their own professional discipline and practice.
Indeed, this programme focuses on practitioners and professionals in criminal justice (e.g. policing, courts, probation, prison work, alternative sanctions, community sanctions, service providers in the sphere of drugs and addiction, and so on) or related fields of work and practice (e.g. local authority and third sector service providers in the sphere of crime prevention, security, community building and offender rehabilitation; private providers in the above or related spheres; non-governmental action in a variety of spheres such as environmental action, human rights policy and activism, and so on). This list is not exhaustive.
The Doctorate in Criminology award is designed for professionals and practitioners in diverse fields of criminal justice (broadly defined) who wish to study at an advanced level of academic accrediatation while continuing in their professional roles.
