About

The Victimology course at the University of Portsmouth is about understanding and helping people at one of the lowest points in their life – when they have become the victim of a crime.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Take your studies or career in a rewarding and socially responsible direction as you gain an insight into the challenges faced by victims of crime, and study the theoretical perspectives that inform our understanding of victimisation. 

During the Victimology course at the University of Portsmouth you'll explore the wider historical and political contexts that influence victim-centred policy and legislation, gaining the skills you need to advocate for victims of crime anywhere within the criminal justice system.

You'll study the ways in which society now identifies and treats victims, and the way these changes have impacted professional cultures and practices. You'll also learn how to identify individuals who are most vulnerable or at a greater risk of being victimised. 

Careers this Master’s prepares you for

An increase in victim-centred policies and legislation has resulted in a shortage of specialists in this field (gov.uk). You'll graduate with an in-depth understanding of the responsibilities involved in working with victims of crime as well as the policies and legislation that underpin them.
