International in its outlook, this course covers global security issues, including terrorism and transnational crime.This course will give you a thorough grounding in the disciplines of criminology and security. Criminology involves critical examination of 'crime' and 'deviance' and the processes through which the criminal justice system responds to these phenomena.

You will have the opportunity to undertake an assessed industry placement or research-based dissertation. You will have the opportunity to study a language module and/or spend up to a year on a study abroad exchange placement.You will gain the critical awareness, subject knowledge and industry experience required to advance in a competitive graduate market.
