Explore an exciting blend of criminology and criminal justice subjects and address key contemporary questions and debates. By studying criminological theory and policy you’ll see how conceptual frameworks can be applied to thinking about crime and society.

Our MA is underpinned by our research expertise on topics such as:

  • sexual violence

  • terrorism

  • prisons and punishment

  • cultural criminology

  • existential criminology.

You’ll be taught by experts who shape the field of criminology and criminal justice studies. Their latest insights and research underpin the course content. The course also draws on expertise from Sussex Law School. This will help you develop an interdisciplinary perspective and understand issues in different contexts.

Studying in a lively intellectual environment, you’ll have the opportunity to network with other students from around the world. The global perspective you’ll gain these networks will also be valuable after you graduate.

We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities described in this prospectus. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to government or regulatory requirements, or unanticipated staff changes, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
