Criminology and Offending

Our MSc Applied Management of Offending Behaviour is a distinctive course for those who are currently working with offenders in probation, prison, youth justice, policing or community settings, as well as those aspiring to work in the criminal justice sector.

The course will foster the application of critical and analytical skills to the theory, policy and practice of working with offenders, while exploring the processes, contexts, risks and protective factors underlying criminal behaviour. You will also evaluate the role of criminal justice agencies in offender management and rehabilitation.

Alternatively, you can interrogate a variety of aspects of criminology and offending in depth on our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy.

Facilities

The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Law and Criminology.

The three-storey building includes a 250-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.

Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) and the EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, which simulates a wide range of crime scenes.
