The International Master’s in Advanced Research in Criminology (IMARC) is the only existing 2-year programme in criminology that focuses on border crossing, security and social justice. The joint programme is offered by three different Universities in Europe.
The Universities involved in the programme, all have an ample, albeit different research and teaching expertise in the field of criminology, with special regards to the border crossing, security and social justice. The main aim of the Strategic Partnership is bringing this expertise together and developing a balanced and innovative curriculum with a number of common activities and courses (mainly in the field of global criminology, research methods and transferable skills) and optional courses in order to provide the possibility to follow different tracks. ln addition, IMARC will include innovative, interactive teaching methods, in which the strengths of both face-to-face student-lecturer contact, informal learning and social media are optimised.
