The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) has a long and distinguished history, and is one of the largest and most successful social science research communities in Europe.
It has received top ratings in Research Assessment Exercises, and most recently had 70% of its work judged as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in terms of its “originality, significance and rigour”.
Taught through distance learning, the programme gives you a thorough understanding of the social science ideas and research methods that are applied to the study and development of criminal justice policy and practice. This includes an advanced understanding of governmental strategies that can be used to reduce social harm and crime, with a particular emphasis on the policy and practice of prisons, probation and the police. It uses UK and international examples to help you develop your ability to study and create effective criminal justice policy and practice.
