Overview

Though incarceration is often associated with imprisonment in jail or prison, the word has a host of contexts including historical slavery, Native American captivity, wartime camps, modern-day trafficking and even situations of domestic abuse. On this programme, you'll explore incarceration in a range of forms in the UK, US and other situations globally.

The Incarceration Studies programme at the University of Hull combines traditional seminar-style classes with unique environments outside of the classroom, whether working with ex-prisoners locally or organising an academic conference on campus.

One of the key modules takes place in its entirety at HMP Hull, whereby university students will learn together with prison learners.

Future prospects

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this degree, you'll develop a range of knowledge and skills to help you stand out in the job market. 

As well as mastering new disciplines, you'll develop your skills in research, team-work, project management, writing and presentation skills. The development of your research and analytical skills will give you a firm grounding if you wish to progress to PhD study.
