We will focus on safeguarding, digital victimisation, rehabilitation policy and practice, and risk and security management, among other areas.
In addition to enhancing your theoretical command of criminology, you will develop advanced research skills, suitable for theoretical and practical application. As a result, you will be equipped to respond to a range of complex challenges faced by multi-agency professionals with a remit to safeguard communities.
This programme is distinct in its comprehensive analysis of risk and safeguarding as criminological issues. This analytical approach is grounded in an acknowledgement of the correlation between the exploitation of children and adults at risk and subsequent offending behaviour.
On this course you will...
- Develop advanced knowledge and understanding of criminology, risk and safeguarding informed by current practice and research.
- Identify appropriate methodologies for dealing with complex problems.
- Examine the intersectionality of power in relation to criminal justice agencies and responses to crime, law and order.
- Form a critical awareness of the history of ideas, cultural context, as well as social and political theories that inform and influence the practice of criminology.
