Terrorism, Security and Policing MSc
1 year full-time, 2 years part-time
This is for you if... you want to gain a detailed theoretical and applied understanding of the key issues and challenges surrounding security, policing and terrorism post-9/11 (and 7/7) and in the face of new and different threats from terrorist and organised crime groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram.
Teaching and learning
You will be taught through a combination of lectures and seminars where you will have the opportunity to discuss and clarify ideas with lecturers and fellow students. Some modules will also involve practical skills workshops or online tasks and interaction.
Our assessment strategy is coursework-based and provides students with opportunities to both consolidate and strengthen academic skills through assessments such as short written pieces, annotated bibliographies, essays and research exercises; whilst also completing tasks which develop the skills required in future employment. These more 'authentic' modes of assessment may take the form of oral presentations, practitioner briefing papers, reports and letters to government ministers. You will also complete a dissertation in which you will conduct research on a topic of your choice.
Learning from some of the best minds in the field of Criminology has opened my eyes to a whole new world.
