The School of Law at the University of Limerick was delighted to host a Research Review Morning for candidates enrolled on the Master of Arts in Serious Crime Investigation programme on 5th June.
The Research Review Morning, which was co-ordinated by Dr Alan Cusack, offered the MA candidates an opportunity to share their dissertation topics with their colleagues and to discuss how they were finding the research process. As part of the event, Professor Shane Kilcommins led an engaging ‘3 Minute Thesis’ seminar, before Dr Sean Redmond, Adjunct Professor at the School of Law, delivered a fascinating presentation on his research into the impact of criminal networks on youth offending in Ireland.
Representing the first programme of its kind in Ireland, the Master of Arts in Serious Crime Investigation is a one-year, full-time degree specifically designed for graduates of the level 9 Postgraduate Diploma in Serious Crime Investigation, delivered at An Garda Síochána Training College in Templemore.
By interrogating modern investigative policing practice in light of contemporary legal debates, the programme allows learners to capitalise on their existing expertise and to develop a range of additional analytical skills that are essential in navigating the challenges associated with modern crime investigation.
We wish the candidates on the Master of Arts programme every success in their research over the Summer months ahead.
