Criminology with Security - University of Salford

One of the first of its kind, this course responds to recent events, both nationally and internationally, which highlight the importance of security in preventing, controlling and responding to all forms of crime, whether originating in local, national or transnational contexts. 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. This course also addresses the nature of threats to security, how states seek to manage and neutralise those threats, and how security is situated within the wider theory and practice of international politics. You will have an industry-relevant and industry-informed learning experience, being taught by nationally and internationally recognised researchers and industry partners. 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.
