The course is built around a core of three specialist themes: violent crime (particularly homicide), crime and the community, and international issues in crime, security and conflict.Each theme builds on the research expertise of tutors and the contributions of a wide range of practitioners drawn from the police and criminal justice agencies. You will study at least two of these themes and may pursue all three. You will also have the option to undertake study in ancillary subjects including forensic psychology and Geographic Information Systems.

The course offers a critical and integrative understanding of the relationship between theory, research and application to real-world settings. There is a focus on developing practitioner skills, and assignments require the application of advanced subject knowledge to activities which match challenges in the workplace.
