4 MASTER'S DEGREE IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY 1. Master's course in International Criminology 1.1 Profile and qualification objectives of the course The master's course in International Criminology deals with questions of the societal production of norms and normality, deviation and crime, dangers and risks as well as corresponding control technologies and forms of intervention. The focus is on social practices and societal dynamics, which can be traced on the levels of micro-politics of social places and institutions through to global security interventions. The course is interdisciplinary at the interface between law and social sciences and imparts knowledge and skills on relevant methods and theories at an advanced level that is oriented towards international debates. The course is research-oriented. The aim of the study is the ability to analyze and critically reflect on the production of criminological facts, to conduct independent research, as well as to introduce criminological knowledge into public discourse. Graduates of the International Criminology master’s program know the theoretical, methodological and content-related basics of the subject of criminology and have specific knowledge, particularly in the field of international control and security strategies. You have the ability to recognize subject-specific problems and to work on them independently based on the methods and professional knowledge you have acquired. They can relate complex specialist content to current problems and convey these relationships in a way that is understandable for outsiders. Through their studies, the students prepare themselves for a professional activity in the entire field of societal handling of crime and security problems. The MA program in International Criminology not only teaches its students the specific fundamentals of the subject of criminology (e.g. theoretical foundations of criminological knowledge production; genealogy of criminological theories, institutions and practices) and options for exemplary deepening of selected criminological topics and problem contexts, but also enables them in particular Measures for the independent implementation of empirical research projects: since the range of methods on offer includes both quantitative and qualitative methods and the teaching research project of the two-semester research module includes all phases of a research process, the students are enabled to recognize and approve the methodological approach that is appropriate for their own research project plan and assess the results of their research based on their survey contexts. The International Criminology course offers the opportunity to start a career in criminological research and teaching and, often in combination with the initial qualification, to take on leading positions in judicial, domestic and social administration. This is also confirmed by analyzes that show that in Germany a specific criminological qualification is required in very different fields, in some areas in combination with a further qualification.

6 MASTER'S DEGREE IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY 3. Examination Regulations for the Master's Degree in International Criminology 3.1. Number of examination attempts and time of module examinations Number of examination attempts: For all examinations (except for the master's thesis) there is a standardized maximum of three attempts in all modules of the master's program in International Criminology. Exams that have been passed cannot be repeated. Timing of module exams: There are no deadlines within which certain exams have to be completed. It is advisable to take or take the modules, courses and exams in the Master’s program in International Criminology in the semesters specified on the curriculum. This ensures that you have a largely even workload throughout the course of your studies. Registration for modules, courses and examinations. Principles of mandatory registration: For all modules, courses and exams, you are obliged to register via STiNE. Registration takes place in the first or second registration phase before or at the beginning of the semester. The registration phases are published in STiNE several months before the start of the semester. As a rule, the first registration phase for courses begins before a winter semester at the beginning of September and before a summer semester in mid-February. The second registration phase (correction and re-registration phase, allocation of remaining places) usually takes place in the first two weeks of the lecture period. Module registration: Registration for a course that is part of a module requires registration for the respective module in STiNE. Change of examination dates and cancellation of examinations: Examination dates can be changed during the course of the semester within certain deadlines; It is also possible to cancel exams within certain deadlines. Missed examination: A registration for a module examination at the end of a registration or re-registration period is binding. Anyone who does not take part in a registered examination without excuse has failed (grade 5.0). This also applies if a student registers for a course with the associated examination, but does not take part and fails to deregister from the examination in due time. Notification of sickness for examinations: For written examinations, you have to report sickness in the case of illness, Study Office Social Sciences. You can find the relevant form on the website of the Student Services Office. The following applies to the examination type term paper: If you are unable to meet one or more deadlines for term papers / project reports etc. due to illness or other reasons for which you are not responsible, we recommend that you inform the respective lecturer of this first him or her to extend the examination period, i.e. to arrange a later deadline for your homework. If it is not possible to reach an agreement with the lecturer (e.g. because he or she cannot be reached), you can apply for an extension of the deadline directly to the examination board. In this case, please apply for an extension of the term for the term paper (website Studienbüro Sozialwissenschaften> Service). Repetition of courses and examinations: If an examination is not passed in the first attempt, it is necessary to re-register for a later examination date. If the repetition is to take place in a later semester, you must re-register for a suitable course and, if necessary, take part in it. Type of examination: written examination Number of examination dates: At the end of the lectures offered by the social sciences department, two examination dates are offered that can be freely chosen by the students. This means that the first and / or the second appointment can be kept. Cancellation and re-registration of examination dates are possible (via STiNE) for all written examinations up to three days before the examination date. 6th

7 MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY Registration for repeat exams: Students who take an exam on the first exam date of the semester and fail, may have to register for the second exam themselves. This is possible up to three days before the exam date. Participation in the second exam date is not possible without registration. Block examination later: The STiNE option block examination later is synonymous with deregistering from all examination dates after a certain course. Anyone who has chosen this option must register again for a suitable event in one of the following semesters in order to take the exam. Registration for a later exam date is therefore not automatic! Type of examination: term paper, project work Number of exam dates: At the end of each seminar there is an exam date (deadline for term papers). The date will be announced in the event commentary and in the seminar. Deregistration from examinations: If you do not want to write a term paper in the respective semester, you can deregister from the examination up to the last day of the lecture period in the relevant semester. Study achievements: In many modules, study achievements have to be achieved as an examination requirement during the course of the courses. The type of required study achievements will be announced at the beginning of the STiNE registration phase or at the latest by the lecturers at the beginning of the event. You will find an overview of possible academic achievements in the subject-specific provisions and the examination regulations for the International Criminology Master’s course in the appendix Examination results Correction deadlines and notification of the examination results Correction deadline: Written module (partial) exams should be assessed within four weeks. Announcement of grades: You can find out your grades in your STiNE portal under Studies> Examinations> Examination results (remember to set the correct examination semester!). Objections to examination results Discussion with lecturers: If you do not agree to the grading of an examination, you should always first contact the lecturer or examiner with whom you have taken the examination. Chair of the examination board: If you still disagree with the grading after a conversation with the lecturer, you can contact the chair of the board of examiners. Complaints Office of the WISO Faculty: The Complaints Office supplements the existing complaint options. In the event of complaints about the conduct of the examination or the results of the examination, the responsible teacher or examiner should always be spoken to first. If this does not lead to an agreement, an objection can be lodged with the responsible examination board. A legal review and, if necessary, correction of the contested decision can only be initiated if a complaint has been formally filed with the examination board. Objection procedure: If the decentralized examination board does not accept your complaint against the grading, there is the possibility of a formal objection procedure. 7th

8 MASTER'S DEGREE IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY 3.5. Grade calculation Grading: All modules in the master's program in International Criminology conclude with a grade. This module grade results either from the assessment of a module examination (as in the module Fundamentals of Criminology, the research module and the final module) or from the arithmetic mean of two or more partial module exams (in the module Fundamentals of Criminological Research and the profile module Special Criminologies). Weighting of grades: The module grades are weighted with the number of credit points (CP) of the respective module or module part. This results in the following weighting of the module grades for the International Criminology Master’s program with regard to the formation of the overall final grade: - The grades of the two basic modules (14 CP each) each make up 14% of the overall grade. - The grade of the research module (22 CP) is included in the overall grade with 22%. - The grade of the profile module Special Criminologies (24 CP) is included in the overall grade with 25%. - The grade for the final module (master's thesis, 30 CP) is included in the overall grade with 25%.- The examination results in the elective area (partly graded, partly not graded) are not included in the overall grade. 4. STiNE: Some technical information This section explains some technical basics and special features of the STiNE study management software (Study Info Network). When you can register for modules, courses and exams is explained in the above section Examination Regulations. Module in which you would like to attend the relevant event and, if applicable, in which semester you attended an event of this module for the first time. This makes it easier to identify the appropriate module and significantly reduces the risk of incorrect registration. Requirements for registering for modules, courses and examinations STiNE is a database that connects three levels of study: Master's degree in International Criminology Module Courses. In order for you to be able to register for courses and exams, the module you want to take must be linked to your course of study (your examination regulations), and the desired course must be linked to the appropriate module. In addition, the first or second registration phase must be running. If you do not see a certain module in the area Studies> Events> Registration for Events, this is usually due to one of the following reasons: No courses are offered for this module in the semester in question; You can check this using the course catalog. You have passed the examination for this module and are therefore no longer allowed to attend any courses in the module. If you contact the study coordinator if you have any registration problems, please always include where can I find my examination dates and results? You can only find out whether you are registered for an examination or for which examination date (first or second date) you are in the menu Studies> Exams> Registration for exams. You can find the location of an exam in STiNE in your timetable (in the Dates menu) and, if applicable, in the event details. If you have not yet completed all of the services in a module, your examination results will not be displayed in your performance account. For the time being, you will only find these results in the menus Studies> Exams> Exam results (grading of the exams) and Studies> Exams> Partial achievements (passed partial modules). This also applies if you have been recognized by external examinations for a sub-module and you still have to complete the rest of the module at the University of Hamburg. The module grade and the credit points for the module will only appear in your performance account when you have completed all the work in a module. The credit points for a module can only be credited to you when all of the module's work has been completed. 8th

9 MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY 5. General information: From pick-up folder to studies abroad Pick-up folder at the helpdesk of the Social Sciences Study Office Your assessed exams and term papers from courses in the Social Sciences Department (course number) are stored in a personal pick-up folder at the Social Sciences Study Office's help desk. You can and should collect your examination papers there. Recognition of study and examination achievements You can have equivalent study and examination achievements of a previous degree recognized. Equivalent means that in terms of content, workload and level of qualification they roughly correspond to the services for which they are to be credited. Please contact the study coordinator with applications for recognition. The application is made using the application for recognition of academic achievements (download from the website of the Social Sciences Office). For recognition, an official transcript of records or equivalent, meaningful certificates of the study and examination achievements to be recognized (in the original and in copy) as well as module or event descriptions of the achievements to be recognized must be submitted. You can find detailed information on the recognition procedure in the master’s program in International Criminology on the website of the Social Sciences Office. The examination board for the International Criminology Master’s course decides on recognition. Recognized examination performances are entered in your performance account in STiNE. If achievements cannot be recognized due to a lack of equivalence, you will be informed of the reasons for the non-recognition. Standard period of study The standard period of study in the master’s program in International Criminology is four semesters. The standard period of study initially only means that the master’s course can be completed in four semesters if the course progresses as planned, but does not have to be completed. In principle, you can study for more than six semesters. If, however, you do not complete your degree in the 6th semester, you will have to attend a course advisory service. Otherwise there is a risk of de-registration. Courses with restricted attendance Except for lectures, all events in the social sciences faculty are generally restricted in attendance. You should therefore register in the first registration phase for all courses that you would like to attend in the respective semester. Part-time study You can, under certain conditions, register as a part-time student (also for a limited period of one or two years), for example if you are employed with a Weekly working time of at least 15 hours, in the case of caring for a child or dependent relatives or in the case of disabilities or chronic illnesses that make proper full-time study impossible. Information on part-time studies can be obtained from the Student Affairs team at the Campus Center. The study coordinator will support you in creating an individual study plan. Course catalog for the master’s course in International Criminology In STiNE, a commented course book for the Master’s course in International Criminology is provided every semester, which provides information on all modules and courses. You can access it directly in STiNE via the course directory> Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences> Teaching sub-courses in social sciences. Website of the master’s degree program The website of the degree program provides information on the currently applicable provisions of the master’s degree in International Criminology: Study abroad A degree abroad can be completed as part of the Master’s degree in International Criminology. Many students take this opportunity and spend one or two semesters through the so-called Erasmus program, e.g. at the University of Kent, Middlesex University of London or the University of Utrecht. A semester abroad is recommended in the master’s program in International Criminology, usually in the third semester. You have to apply for this semester abroad in the previous February, i.e. at the end of your first semester. The study coordinator responsible for your degree program will advise you on how to integrate it into your course of studies and will also discuss all questions relating to the recognition of academic achievements with you. You can get organizational support in the planning and implementation of a semester abroad from the International Office of the WISO faculty. 9
