Course content

This programme 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 or criminology from undergraduate study and for those who are new to these subjects.

The programme draws on the latest research in the field of crime, security and justice. Two 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.
