The core programme is similar to the more general MSc in Criminology & Criminal Justice, but through its focus on a range of pressing global issues it provides students with exposure to a field of study that is fast developing in criminology. This is the move away from a local focus in the study of crime and justice, towards the study of crimes that occur across national borders, and the systems and approaches of international justice that are developing to try to engage with such criminality.
Global threats such as transnational organised crime and terrorism raise profound issues for conventional state-based systems of criminal justice and their treatment of concepts like security, liberty, justice, equality and human rights.
This MSc comprises core courses in:
- Understanding & Explaining Crime & Social Harm
- Criminological Perspectives on Security & Globalisation
- The Global Criminal Economy: White-collar Crime & Organised Crime
- Research & Enquiry in Criminology & Criminal Justice
Students take all of the core courses plus a selection of two options from:
- Criminal Justice: Global Challenges
- Punishment & Penology
- Crime, Media & Popular Culture
- Crime & Community Safety
- Rehabilitation & Desistance from Crime
Students also research and write a 12,500 word dissertation on a subject of their choice in the field of transnational crime, justice and security under the guidance of an experienced supervisor.
