What will you study on the MA Youth Justice, Community Safety and Applied Criminology?
The course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to investigate and analyse contemporary problems of crime, disorder and community safety and to evaluate current policies and practices designed to address them. The core modules focus on applying criminological theory and research to policy and practice, youth offending, disorder and gangs, interpersonal violence and hate crime, and community safety and public protection. The remainder of the programme is made up by studying optional modules which examine particular aspects of crime and criminal justice in depth or through a work-based learning or internship project.
Students must complete 180 credits. In addition to the 20-credit core modules and a Dissertation, students make up the remaining 40 credits of study by choosing either one or two of the optional 20-credit modules and/or one of the work-based learning options.
Not all of the optional modules listed will be available in any one year. Module availability is dependent on staffing and the number of students wishing to take each module.
