Criminology at the University of Glasgow
Recognising the challenge for politicians, policy makers and practitioners in the criminal justice fields, the University of Glasgow’s postgraduate Masters programmes address the complex problems that crime and security threats pose for contemporary societies. Drawing on the combined strengths of academic staff at the University of Glasgow, who are also members of the Scottish Centre for Crime & Justice Research, the breadth and diversity of expertise represented within the teaching teams are a key strength of the programmes.
All teaching staff are currently actively engaged in research into crime and criminal justice, and have experience and supervisorial expertise in diverse areas such as crime prevention, community safety, youth crime and youth justice, white collar crime, organised crime, transnational crime, the governance of security, violence, gender and criminal justice, social work with offenders, offender management, punishment, penology and sentencing.
We offer three taught MSc Criminology programmes:
All three are available part-time and full-time, and we welcome applicants from across the UK and abroad. The courses will be of interest to those who are concerned to understand the contemporary critical social and political challenges posed by crime and security threats, and are suitable for those who have studied criminology at undergraduate level and for those who are new to the subject. The programmes are directly relevant to those considering, or already working in, professional careers in criminal justice, and public, private and third sector agencies concerned with crime prevention, security and criminal justice locally, nationally and internationally. For those with a research or teaching career in mind, they can be a precursor to further study at doctoral level.
Teaching on our Masters programmes normally takes the form of weekly seminars in which student reading and active participation are very strongly encouraged. In line with advances in educational theory and practice, student assessment can take a number of forms although we favour written essays which incorporate personal research.
