Program Information

School:University of South Wales - Graduate Programs
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Youth Services/Administration
Description:Ideal for practitioners, managers and policy makers, the MSc Working with Adult and Young Offenders is the first of its kind in the UK with a specialist focus on the theory and practice of offender management. With recent changes to the organisation and management of community orders in the UK, and the partial privatisation of probation, there is now a greater focus on developing practices for managing post-sentence work with people who have been convicted. This specialist Criminology Masters will provide graduates with the knowledge and theory to further influence and lead the development of practice in post-custody supervision.

Throughout your studies, you’ll delve into the philosophy, theory and practice of working with individuals who are sentenced to either serve a community order or a prison sentence and who are subject to post-custody supervision. Upon successful completion of the MSc Working with Adult and Young Offenders you could pursue a career in the criminal justice system, such as the police, courts, prison, probation services and youth offending services.
