This course is directed at students seeking a short, tailored program in criminology, criminal justice and restorative justice as well as practitioners and policy-makers in these fields who may wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding of recent domestic and international developments.

The Certificate will suit people who wish to gain expert, relevant and up-to-date information about contemporary and emergent theoretical, empirical and policy-related developments in these fields, with a particular emphasis on the comparative aspects of these developments

As a student on the Certificate you’ll take fewer modules than classmates studying toward the MA in International Criminology. The PG Certificate allows you to choose four taught modules from the MA program, with the option to study on a full or part time basis.

Upon successful completion, you also have the option to apply for transfer to the MA in International Criminology, with the completed modules counted towards the masters degree.
