Comments about MSc in Global Security and Policing - At the institution - Leicester - Leicestershire

  • Objectives
    To provide students with a detailed knowledge of the current debates on security and policing with a specific focus on global issues and their impact at the local level, particularly in a post ‘9/11’ world. The primary orientation of the course is in the arena of criminology but it also draws upon a number of other disciplines including politics, law, and sociology. The increasing centrality of the concept of 'risk' to policing strategies at the local, national and international levels is critically examined. Students will learn how to critically appraise research as well as conduct and write up their own study on a topic of their choice.
