Whilst you may think you know the definition of “incarceration” as being in jail or prison, the word has a whole host of other contexts which you’ll explore on this programme.
You’ll take the concept of “incarceration” as a focal point to spark active discussion and analysis. You and your peers will also explore the four Cs of "big ideas" of incarceration: Culture; Criminology; Creative-critical practices; and Community.
The programme boasts a vibrant and highly inclusive curriculum that looks at marginalised voices and experiences that have been sidelined in the UK, the US and across the world. This includes those who have experienced miscarriages of justice, terrorist attacks, false imprisonment and discrimination.
As well as working outside of the University, you’ll get the chance to work in the Cultures of Incarceration Centre. This unique space gives you the opportunity to attend talks, present at seminars, and network with like-minded students and professionals.
The course helps graduates become excellent, empowered and empathetic global communicators and researchers. If you’re enthusiastic about debating and amplifying voices who need support, this course is for you.
