    Human Rights and Criminology LLM
  • Course description
    This unique interdisciplinary programme is provided in conjunction with the Department of Social Sciences. It focuses on the relationship between criminology, criminal justice, and the law and principles of human rights. It explores the human rights standards applicable to criminal justice institutions, and the study of human rights violations as forms of criminal behaviour. Students are given the opportunity to engage in both legal and criminological analysis of human rights issues, which have developed into a crucial area of concern at all levels of society. In developing their knowledge and insight in relation to human rights, they benefit from taking modules in both the Law School and the Department of Social Sciences.

    The programme’s interdisciplinary nature makes it ideal for both lawyers and non-lawyers. The programme is taught wholly at the Hull Campus. It has one commencement in September of each year and runs for 12 months.

    The programme consists of three semesters.The first two semesters comprise taught modules, and students pursue three modules per semester. There is a wide range of modules to choose from, and most modules are directly based on the research interests of the staff involved. The final semester comprises the Dissertation, which is a supervised independent research project. The programme emphasises the development of research skills through the teaching techniques in the individual modules and through supervision of the Dissertation. It provides students with a wide range of transferable skills that can be applied to legal practice or further academic study.

    Students are required to take Foundations of Human Rights and Theorising about Crime in Semester 1 and Human Rights Violations in Semester 2. A further 60 credits need to be taken from the lists of optional modules offered by the Law School and the Department of Social Sciences.
