Professor Emeritus Malcolm Cowburn BA, MA, CQSW, MPhil, PhD, FHEA


I worked at Sheffield Hallam University from September 2008 until March 2013 as a Principal Lecturer in Criminology. I was awarded a personal Chair in Applied Social Science in February 2010. I previously worked at Bradford (2 years) and Sheffield (12 years) Universities. My work spans criminology, sociology, social policy and social work. Prior to entering academia, I worked as a probation officer for 12 years and also managed a therapy centre that provided help to children and young people who had been sexually abused.

Since retirement I have been associated with two Universities in the South-West of England, the NRES Ethics committee in Exeter, Buckfast Abbey and MAPPA in Devon and Cornwall (see ‘Other Responsibilities below).
