Criminology, Criminal Justice Policy and Sociology of Criminal Law


Law yard - Master

This master's degree builds on the basic premise that appropriate, effective action in the area of criminality is inseparable from a rigorous social analysis of the causes and consequences of criminal behaviour. Therefore, the programme offers a solid academic and curricular structure and a prestigious team of teaching staff with distinguished careers in their fields.
This provides the foundations for concentrated effort, a broad knowledge base, and diverse perspectives on criminal and penal sciences, with a marked interdisciplinary character brought by the participation of different university departments and external experts.
