The MSc in Terrorism, Security and Policing will provide you with a detailed understanding of the key issues surrounding security, policing and terrorism post-9/11 (and 7/7) and in the face of new and different threats from organisations such as ISIS and Boko Haram. The course content also reflects emergent global crime and security issues concerning organised crime, financial crime and the relationship between security and human rights.
You will develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of terrorism and other transnational security challenges and their consequences, both theoretical and applied. Option modules allows you to specialise in areas of interest that relate to your professional needs including Comparative Policing, Psychology of Evil and Crime Prevention and Community Safety.
This degree will develop your capacity for imaginative, rigorous and critical thinking. As well as gaining specific knowledge of global security challenges and strategies for addressing these, you will strengthen your ability to understand and use different types of evidence. You will develop transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers, including the ability to present and develop a cohesive argument, communicate information to academic and non-academic audiences, conduct research and identify solutions to theoretical and practical problems in a rapidly changing field.
