About

The Crime, Violence and Prevention MSc degree at London Metropolitan University will appeal to practitioners and students interested in a range of professions including policing, probation, prison service work, social work and many new areas in third and private sector security, and outsourced support for offenders, vulnerable adults and young people. 

Overview

The Crime, Violence and Prevention MSc degree at London Metropolitan University encourages you to look critically at public protection, a key practitioner concept for professionals working in socially responsible professions. There is a special emphasis on gaining a sound grasp of the relevant academic literature, including substantial use of key scholarly journals in the field of criminology and criminal justice. There is also a focus on how theory relates to and enhances good practice.

Those already engaged in a related occupation will benefit from the course as it provides the academic context to understand and evaluate the complexity of, and reciprocity between, varied agencies, departments and policies related to crime, criminology and criminal justice.

After the course

Criminology itself is an increasingly strong and prevalent academic discipline. The analytical and research skills acquired on the MSc are transferable to other jobs and areas of expertise. The course will help prepare you for employment in the criminal justice sector including the police, probation, prison, youth offending and community safety departments, and academic or government research posts.

Previous students have joined the police service either as police officers or civil investigation officers, embarked upon training to equip them to join the probation service or have become social workers working with young offenders.

Other students have joined the voluntary sector working in residential or drugs and alcohol units. Many have also entered research jobs within the public or private sector or have progressed on to PhD studies.
