About

The School of Social Sciences provides a stimulating and supportive environment for postgraduate training. The emphasis is on small groups, close working relationships between students and supervisors, and development towards full professional participation in the subject area. The Criminology and Criminal Justice programme is offered at Bangor University.

Overview

Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Bangor is focussed on comparative study at a number of cross-cultural levels: national, international and rural-urban comparisons are three of the most important ways in which comparative criminological work is undertaken. For research students we are able to provide both a full research training programme and high quality expert supervision across a broad spectrum of subjects.

Current graduate students are conducting research on:

  • Women’s accounts of their violent behaviour
  • An ethnographic study of cannabis use in a North Wales community
  • Identity fraud
  • Social problems and juvenile delinquency in Malawi
  • Restorative justice and rehabilitation
  • Accommodating sex offenders after prison

The Criminology and Criminal Justice programme is offered at Bangor University.
