Course content

This innovative degree stream is a response to the changing face of policing and security in a post 9/11 world offering students the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in this hugely important area. The programme examines theories and concepts associated with globalisation and relates them to attendant developments within the fields of security and policing. It looks at some of the motivations of transnational criminality, the association between trans-national criminal activity and local crime problems in communities, in the context of social and cultural, political, ideological and economic frameworks.
