This masters degree explores new perspectives and ways of thinking about crime, harm and justice. It is concerned with examining problematic areas of social life, transgression, crime, social harm and justice in an increasingly global world. You will consider the significance of power, social structure, and economic and social inequalities in understanding crime, processes of criminalisation, and ideas about justice.
The qualification will enhance your ability to construct clear, logical and theoretically informed arguments about problems of criminological interest. The skills you will develop include the ability to think differently about problems of crime, social harm and the delivery of justice. You will also hone your skills in identifying, assessing and authoritatively debating and presenting arguments and evidence.
