Why choose
this course?

  • As corporations grow in power and influence, it’s becoming increasingly important to understand how they can engage in criminal behaviour, how best to regulate against this, and what responsibilities corporations themselves have towards society. 
  • This is the first, and currently the only, MSc of its kind in the UK, providing a combined approach to corporate crime and corporate responsibility. 
  • On this course, we place strong emphasis on helping you develop the methodological skills to efficiently study corporate crime. This will sharpen your ability to think in a logical and informed manner about an array of problems, as well as train you to conduct effective research in this and other areas of criminology. 
  • All our criminology masters courses meet the British Criminology Society benchmarks for postgraduate taught courses
