Summary... header image

The programme provides a strong intellectual background for anyone thinking of working in culturally sensitive areas such as policing, social work, journalism, politics, research, care, health and justice agencies, support groups, prisons, charities, film or television.

Course Details header image

Crime, deviance, morality, conflict, censure and justice are combined with philosophy, history, cultural studies and a language to give an exceptional breadth and depth of perspective and context. It is a window on the world, one of insight into human diversity in complex societies, a textured view of our propensity to err, conflict, blame and punish.
