Researching Crime and Criminal Justice You then select four options, of 15 M Level credits. For the MA Criminal Justice: ? Crimes of the Powerful ? Drugs, Alcohol and Criminal Justice ? Policing, Race and Ethnicity ? Sex, Crime and Society ? The Management of Offenders: Prisons, Probation and the State ? Youth Justice For those interested in the MA International Criminal Justice you will need to choose: ? Contemporary Issues in International Criminal Justice ? The UN, International Security, and Global Justice (Please note, the School reserves the right to amend the list of options offered) Both the MA in Criminal Justice and its International variant are available full-time over one year and two-years on a part-time basis. Whichever individually tailored ?route? is taken the MA in Criminal Justice framework ensures all students will critically explore a series of stimulating and emergent debates within criminal justice, appreciate the role of research in policy manufacture, and author an original piece of research through the dissertation. As the final element of the programme the 20,000 word dissertation ? successful completion of which will see the award of 60 M Level credits ? allows students to conduct their own piece of research into whatever area of criminal justice they have experience of, andor, interest in and which we approve as being suitable. Taking the form of either an original investigation or an ordered and critical examination of existing scholarship the dissertation is an opportunity for students to take greater ownership of their learning and to innovatively generate their own contribution to knowledge. In order to help organise and manage the completion of the dissertation the research training built into the course will equip students with the skills and understanding required to undertake original, empirical social research. This training not only offers students the opportunity to develop a set of highly transferable skills but will be particularly helpful for applicants looking to take their postgraduate studies further.
