This degree is designed to provide you with an in-depth understanding of crime and criminal justice at national and international levels. It promotes a critical and comparative approach to crime and justice issues intended to equip you with the skills and knowledge required to deal with a range of traditional and non-traditional crime, justice and deviancy issues.
The course looks at contemporary problems such as terrorism and the priorities of global policing, human rights and justice, environmental justice and transnational crime. The international and transnational dimension of crime is an integral part of the programme.
Criminology at Middlesex has a particularly strong international reputation. The Department was pioneering in an inﬂuential strand of criminology called 'left realism', and established one of the very ﬁrst courses of its kind in the UK, which is still considered to be one of the leading postgraduate criminology courses.
Our academic staff are involved in developing groundbreaking work, recently in areas such as sex offenders' use of the internet and online child safety and Environmental and Wildlife Crime. Across the Department, our research incorporates crime, policing, community safety, green criminology, justice and victimisation, and broader ﬁelds of conﬂict, social movements, international conﬂicts, political violence and terrorism. This strength of research and academic innovation directly impacts our students and the teaching we provide.
A highlight of the course is an opportunity to attend the Common Study in Critical Criminology sessions with postgraduate criminologists studying in universities across Europe and New York.

This degree will enhance career prospects within general crime and criminal justice, including policing, community safety, youth and adult offender management, crime analysis, applied and academic criminological research and work with drug-users.
The course is also specifically designed to develop students' ability to work within national and international NGOs and in the quasi-judicial and scrutiny arena. Its focus is on both policy and practice in these areas and examines non-traditional policing and justice agencies.
Former students have gone on to work, within the UK and internationally, in ombudsman's schemes, policing, law, prison, probation and offender management, victim support services, alcohol and drug agencies, mental health services and others and/or have been able to progress within organisations such as these with whom they are already employed.
Those already in industry view their master's-level studies as a means to facilitating career progression within their organisations. A number of students have continued their studies in criminology and psychology at PhD level. Staff in the department will work alongside the employability office to facilitate your future career decisions.
