This degree is designed for people wanting an in-depth understanding of crime and criminal justice at national and international levels. It promotes a critical and comparative approach to crime and justice issues intended to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to deal with a range of traditional and non-traditional crime, justice and deviancy issues.
It looks at contemporary problems such as terrorism and the priorities of global policing, human rights and justice, environmental justice and transnational crime. The international and transnational dimension of crime is an integral part of the programme.
Why study MA Criminology at Middlesex University?
Criminology at Middlesex has a particularly strong international reputation. The Department was pioneering in an inﬂuential strand of criminology called 'left realism' and established one of the very ﬁrst courses of its kind in the UK, which is still considered to be one of the leading postgraduate criminology courses.
Our academic staff is involved in developing groundbreaking work, recently in areas such as 'status dogs' and gangs (Dr. Simon Harding), sex offenders' use of the internet and online child safety (Dr. Elena Martellozzo), Environmental and Wildlife Crime (Dr. Angus Nurse). Across the Department, our research incorporates crime, policing, community safety, green criminology, justice and victimization, and broader ﬁelds of conﬂict, social movements, international conﬂicts, political violence and terrorism
