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. 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.
