The Criminology and Criminal Justice programme from Keele University will be of interest to anyone motivated to make the world a safer place to live and work, whether seeking to reduce and better control crime, or by helping to create and deliver a fair justice process. It will be particularly relevant if you currently or would like to work in criminal justice, community safety, policy, research, rehabilitation, victim support or similar fields. We welcome applicants holding a Bachelor’s degree in any area of the social sciences (broadly defined), law, or forensics. Applicants with equivalent professional or career experience are also welcome.
This MA is designed to provide specialist skills and knowledge to improve the way we deal with crime, conflict, victimisation and punishment. As such, it can lead to variety of careers dedicated to developing and protecting a democratic, safe and just society.
This not only encompasses criminal justice, for example, in governance, politics, security, policing, courts, probation, prison work, alternative and community sanctions, but also related support work, including drugs and addiction, crime prevention, security, community building, offender rehabilitation, environmental action, education and human rights.
