About the courseThis course is designed for all those who want to acquire a thorough understanding of the more recent and often complex trends and developments in crime, criminal justice, and governance more broadly. Combining theoretical reflection and practical application, the course aims to provide you with an opportunity to specialise in the latest developments in criminology, criminal justice and governance studies. The programme welcomes recent graduates (whether UK based or international students), mature students, and professionals in one of the relevant fields (e.g. police officers, prison officers, probation officers, social workers, lawyers, magistrates). The MA programme is block taught. You will be required to attend four 3-day blocks of intensive teaching and discussion that normally run between September and May. This format allows students to combine their studies with either part-time or full-time professional activities should they wish to do so.
