Wherever there are people, crime will follow, which makes criminology an exciting interdisciplinary field to study. This Masters will provide you with specialist criminological knowledge that will enable you to pursue senior roles within criminal justice, the police force and security services, or in offender support and prison services.
On this programme you will delve into a range of specialist topics within the field of criminology and criminal psychology, including the sociological approach to crime, forensic psychology, and criminal investigation. You will develop skills in leading complex criminal investigations, as well as an in-depth understanding of key criminological practices, which will enhance your impact within a policing, prison or other criminal justice setting.
