MA in Contemporary Slavery Studies and Critical Victimology

We are delighted to be able to offer our new MA in Contemporary Slavery Studies and Critical Victimology on a one-year full time or two-year part time basis from September 2021.

Whether you are a practitioner looking to support or find work in the third sector, or a scholar intent on developing your research interests, this MA is designed to offer you new ‘ways of seeing’. Through it you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to critically evaluate different theoretical, technical, normative, moral and political approaches to contemporary forms of slavery and the systems of exploitation that intersect with them. Our academically robust and transformative learning experience is designed to give you the tools you need to understand and shape the research, policy and practice that inform contemporary slavery and the interventions that seek to combat it.

The course is delivered via a blended approach. Teaching and learning activities are provided through our web-based learning system. This is complemented by one week of face-to-face teaching and learning activities at the Wilberforce Institute in Hull in terms 1 and 2.

In terms of educational requirements, we usually ask for an undergraduate honours degree (typically 2:2 or above, or international equivalent) in Criminology, Sociology, Social Policy, Law, Social Work, Anthropology, History or other Humanities / Social Science equivalent.

However, if you have been out of education for a significant period of time but have an interest in studying Victimology and Modern Slavery (broadly defined) we would still encourage you to apply. We are happy to consider any relevant professional experience in making our decisions.
