Summary

This new MSc in Criminology, Gender and Sexualities is the only course of its kind in the UK. Explore growing trends towards gendered analyses of crime and punishment within the field of criminology.

This master's course draws upon a wide range of perspectives to explore contemporary debates in criminology. You'll consider the impact of the #MeToo campaign, the implications of sexual consent, and how different legal systems deal with sex-trafficking and drug-related crimes.

A range of creative learning techniques will help you develop presentation and project skills to enhance your future job prospects.
