MA International Criminology, University of Sheffield
Sheffield is one of Europe's leading centres for research in this field. Our MA takes a comparative, international view of the subject, which is relatively rare for this kind of course.
The Centre for Criminological Research combines expertise from the departments of architecture, law, politics and sociology. We're funded by research councils, government departments and international organisations.
This course is distinctive because it includes elements of international criminology, restorative justice and research training. The strong focus on restorative justice reflects a view of criminal justice found on several continents.
The course is flexible. You can choose the taught path, the restorative justice path or the research route.
There are regular seminars and conferences with legal professionals and criminologists from around the world.
Through your dissertation project, you will develop research skills and an in-depth understanding of the subject.
Teaching takes place through seminars. If you take the restorative justice path you'll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement.
