Course content

This MA Cybercrime and Terrorism course will expose you to the constantly changing nature of online crimes and criminal behaviour in order to understand the threats, trends, issues and responses in terrorism and cybersecurity as well as the crucial ethical questions.

This programme focuses on the changing nature of online crime and criminal behaviour in order to understand the threats, trends, issues, responses and ethical questions associated with, for example, terrorism or security. The programme will examine issues related to the cyber-realm from an interdisciplinary and multi-dimensional perspective, offering a unique look at a range of challenges.

The programme benefits from strong relationships with national and international partners (e.g. policy-makers, government and industrial security practitioners, military organisations, communities, and more).
