O que eu aprenderei?

The master’s programme in criminology will provide you with specialist knowledge on criminal careers, risk assessment and prevention in the areas of crime, substance abuse and mental health problems. The master’s programme in criminology has a multi-disciplinary approach and is based on collaboration across the borders of traditional disciplines and subject areas. It also has a focus on applied research. Criminology addresses the individual as well as the societal perspective and therefore includes health related aspects such as psychological ill-health. The programme contains in-depth courses in method and statistics and you will independently analyse complex phenomena and formulate research questions related to criminology.

Why do people commit crime? What can we do to prevent crime? What are the connections between mental health and substance use in relation to offending and victimization? These are a few of the questions criminologists strive to answer.

Criminology at Malmö University is a multidisciplinary subject that includes a broader range of study areas than just crime; utilizing diverse theories as well as empirical research. It is a subject area that encompasses individual, societal, and situational aspects with a focus on processes and events throughout an individual’s life.

Our students independently, critically and systematically analyze complex topics relevant to social and behavioral science generally, and criminology more specifically. The programme is composed of students from different fields and cultural backgrounds; it encourages students to discuss subjects in both a Swedish and an international context. This provides a chance to develop - emphasizing multi-disciplinary, multi-professional and international work.

The programme highlights international perspectives and encourages student mobility. All courses can be taken independently and are open to national and international students, free-movers as well as exchange students.
