Course Summary

The Doctorate in Cultural and Global Criminology (DCGC) is an international, collaborative, three year postgraduate research programme led by the University of Kent, with partners ELTE Budapest, University of Hamburg and Utrecht University, leading to the submission of a doctoral thesis.

The programme is carefully structured and divided into three main strands: research, subject-specific training and transferable skills training. You develop a politically engaged, international understanding and approach to crime, harm and its control. The programme prepares high-level doctoral candidates to work in the widest range of employment arenas concerned with understanding, preventing and responding to crime in a way that takes account of the global and cultural context. Through the integration of over 30 associated partners it responds to both the impact and the employability agenda in Erasmus Mundus objectives.

Applicants must submit a high quality research proposal fitting DCGC research themes and demonstrate eligibility and academic achievement.

The Doctorate in Cultural and Global Criminology is a three-year interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD-programme funded by the European Union as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate and recognised as delivering training of outstanding quality.
