MSc Degrees in Law and Regulations. Criminology and Criminal Justice is a one-year Master’s at the renowned Leiden Law School at Leiden University. The programme focuses on criminology, criminal law and their mutual relationship. It is unique in its cross-national and multidisciplinary scope. Criminology and Criminal Justice This programme focuses on legitimacy and effectiveness of criminal justice systems around the world and the challenges they face in a globalising world. Applying a comparative perspective, criminal justice systems are analysed regarding their ability to deal with crimes that take place both within and beyond their national borders. Transnational crimes like human trafficking and terrorism increasingly demand coordinated criminal justice responses on a European or international level. The comparative study of criminal justice institutions therefore includes the study of supra-national bodies. Comparative and multidisciplinary perspectives The Criminal Justice Master distinguishes itself by its international comparative perspective, analysing criminal justice systems, legislation and policies in common law and civil law countries. The programme is unique both in its comparative and multidisciplinary focus. Students from all over the world with different backgrounds, such as Criminology, Social sciences, Law, Political sciences, and Philosophy, critically engage themselves with important questions in small-scale groups. Leiden Law School is located in two beautifully renovated national monuments in the historic heart of the medieval city of Leiden. Leiden is the place to study Criminal Justice because of its vicinity to the Hague: international city of peace and justice. Broad understanding with room for individual focus Due to the Criminal Justice Master’s unique multidisciplinary and comparative perspective, graduates gain a deep understanding of the dynamics against which criminal justices processes take place. As the program provides students with a broad and solid background in the realm of Criminal Justice, they are widely deployable in a variety of national and international institutions. At the same time, they are offered plenty of space to pursue their own specific topics of interest through various practical assignments. Practical insights This programme is interactive and taught in small groups resulting in compelling discussions with students from all over the world with different disciplinary and (legal) cultural backgrounds. As a result, you will benefit from an extremely rich and interactive learning environment. Another advantage is that the academic staff in this Master has close ties with the relevant Criminal Justice issues in practice. Apart from following lectures, you will also participate in fieldtrips to Dutch and international institutions such as the Netherlands’ Council of State, Europol and the European Parliament. Specialisations Criminology and Criminal Justice (English) Criminology and Security Policy (Dutch and English) Tuition fees EU/EEA, Dutch (including Netherlands Antilles), Swiss or Surinamese: around €1,984.

MSc European Governance

Utrecht University
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 Netherlands Utrecht

The Master’s programme in European Governance explores pressing concerns facing Europe today: [+]

The Master’s programme in European Governance explores pressing concerns facing Europe today: How can we regulate financial markets in crisis? How can we make the transition to a green economy and sustainable forms of energy? Will reforms to welfare states foster economic growth, and if so, how do we approach these reforms? What are the emerging patterns of intelligence sharing and law enforcement within the context of cross-border policing? Are European countries becoming more similar and homogenous because of the EU? Does the EU unify us as equals or undermine democracy? These are amongst the most important questions facing Europe today. Each issue involves activities at the local, national, and European level, and each requires insight into the fields of economics, law, and public administration. The interdisciplinary Master’s programme in European Governance will equip you with the knowledge and skills to answer these questions and to formulate appropriate responses to the challenges they pose. Our programme prepares you to deal with and work within the framework of European governance – both in Brussels and at home. Study and live in two different European locations The Master in European Governance is a unique double-degree programme offered in partnership with Masaryk University (Brno, Czech Republic) and the University of Konstanz (Germany). As a student in this programme, you will study and live in two different European locations. This will allow you to experience European governance from two different perspectives in the context of a unique personal experience. Double degree Successful graduates will receive two Master diplomas, one from each university, specifying that the degree was completed in cooperation between the universities. The two Master diplomas are equivalent to the Master’s degree in countries of the three partner universities as follows: Brno (Czech Republic): Magistr/ Magistra (Mgr), Konstanz (Germany): Master of Arts (Ma) and Utrecht (The Netherlands): Master of Science (MSc). PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE You will develop the skills to analyse complex problems of European governance from multiple perspectives, including economics, law, political science, and public administration. You will also learn to apply abstract knowledge and theory to real-life problems through case studies, simulations, and policy-oriented research projects. The challenging course content will train you to use academic knowledge to analyse and solve complex problems in different contexts and from different perspectives. This skill set opens up a wide range of job opportunities in local, regional, and national governments, EU institutions, other European organisations, non-profit and for-profit organisations, and consultancy firms that deal with issues of European governance.
