Find out about postgraduate opportunities and try a sample seminar.

Our Department of Criminology throws open its doors on Wednesday 21 March 2012 for an open afternoon aimed at prospective postgraduate students. If you are thinking about studying for a Masters in one of the Criminological topics on offer, come along and find out what is involved.

The Open Afternoon officially starts at 2.00pm, with registration and refreshments available from 1.45pm. The Department is based just off campus at 154 New Walk but there is an optional campus tour at 3.30pm which will take in facilities available to all our students including the Library and the Students’ Union.

Then at 5.00pm, you are invited to join current students for one of the regular research seminars. Dr Neil Chakraborti will present a paper on Missing the Target? A Fresh Set of Challenges for Hate Crime Scholarship and Policy. Dr Chakraborti will argue that “by stringently associating hate crime with particular strands of victims and particular sets of motivations through singular constructions of identity, criminology has failed to move beyond a divisive and hierarchical approach to understanding hate crime.”
