Masterprogram i kulturkriminologi

The Master's programme in Cultural Criminology focuses on crime, deviations and social control through study of how cultural norms, representations and conceptions function in society from the perspectives of individuals and of society. Issues concerning human actions and interactions as well as of collective notions of morality/immorality and normality/abnormality are of key interest. Further topics of study include which social phenomena are defined as deviant and how they are produced and reproduced.

The programme gives the students a solid understanding of criminological phenomena from a cultural perspective. The programme enables students to develop critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to conduct cultural analysis.

The programme also allows students freedom to select courses, an internship or studies abroad according to interests and future needs.

  • Knowledge and understanding within criminology, anthropology and sociology, including knowledge of the disciplinary foundation of the fieldsand general knowledge of current research issues

  • The ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge and analyse, assess and deal with complex cultural criminological phenomena, issues and situations
