Course content

As our lives become increasingly digitised the scope and potential impact of cybercrime is becoming ever broader. In both the business and personal worlds, cyber criminals have the ability to cause considerable harm from remote locations, with numerous industry reports1estimating that the global cost of cybercrime has grown to rival that of the illegal drugs trade.

From financial theft to child abuse, cybercrime can take many forms, and the need for skilled professionals capable of tackling these problems will only grow as smart, connected devices increasingly become the norm.

This master's degree is designed to provide students with an understanding of the criminological, legal and research context of cybercrime. Furthermore, it equips students with an understanding of computing skills and capabilities that will help to respond to online threats to personal information as well as to organisational environments.
