About

The DPhil Criminology at University of Oxford is offered as either a full-time three to four year degree, or a part-time six to eight year degree.

Overview

The DPhil entails researching and writing a thesis of between 75,000 and 100,000 words under the guidance of at least one supervisor who will be an acknowledged authority on your chosen topic. After three or at most four years (no later than eight years for the part-time pathway), you are expected to submit your final thesis. 

Features

  • As a first-year full-time student, or in your first two years as a part-time student, you will follow courses of instruction in criminological research methods to develop your research skills, unless you have acquired sufficient methods training on a master's degree.
  • The Criminology DPhil programme is offered by the Centre for Criminology at University of Oxford to develop academic and transferable skills. You must complete both modules during your DPhil and you can choose which term/academic year it would be most useful for you to take each.
