Course content

The MSc in Global Crime, Justice and Security provides an excellent path to the advanced study of new global developments in the field of crime, criminal law, justice and security.

The MSc is suitable both for students familiar with law, politics and criminology from undergraduate study and for those who are new to these subjects.

The degree draws on a range of research active staff and teaching is research informed. Two core courses introduce students to a range of theoretical perspectives on global crime, justice and security and the ways in which these issues play out in specific contexts.

Knowledge and understanding gained from core components complement specialist options in areas such as policing, cyber-crime, EU and international law, migration, and criminal justice policy. Students intending to go on to doctoral study will be guided to appropriate research skills training.
