This programme delves into the seedy grey market for looted and stolen cultural objects. By combining cutting edge research from the fields of criminology, archaeology, art history, heritage studies, and law, via discussion of compelling case studies, this programme will allow you to explore the criminal networks that function in the area of art crime and what can be done to protect our past and our culture for the future.

**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**
This is the only online art crime and illicit antiquities research programme currently available and is the first university-accredited postgraduate degree offered on this topic.
You will be taught by leading academics in this field, who are members of the Trafficking Culture Project, the only academic research group devoted to the study of the illicit trafficking of cultural objects.
This programme is taught entirely online through pre-recorded lectures and optional real-time seminars. This allows distance learners maximum flexibility while maintaining the high level of instructure and peer interaction needed to explore such challenging topics.
Students who successfully complete the PgCert will have the opportunity to come to Glasgow, to top up to a full masters degree in the areas of criminology and art history.
You will take three courses across three semesters (includes summer teaching). During each course you will investigate and present an art or antiquities crime case study, produce a portfolio-quality ‘digital artefact’ and write an essay for assessment. Depending on your needs and goals, you can take one of the courses individually or all three to achieve the qualification.

- Art crime
