Organised Crime, Terrorism and Security

This course addresses key critical issues surrounding organised criminality and terrorism in contemporary society; the course involves multi-level analyses of organised crime as a concept, alongside the impacts of urbanisation, migration and globalisation upon both the practice of crime. In addition, students address cutting-edge critical, conceptual and theoretical analyses of terrorism and counter-terrorism; this course provides students with a grounding in the key theories and issues within the wider discipline of criminology; they also receive advanced training in the skills and techniques needed to undertake high quality research in this and other criminological areas of inquiry; our conceptual and skills-based tuition provides a substantial foundation for careers within related academic, public, and private sector realms.
