Globally, the security and intelligence landscape is becoming increasingly complicated, with intensifying threats in some countries and the spread of terrorist activities to others. Understanding the drivers of these evolving threats is vital to developing strategies to counter them; it means that specialists in security, intelligence studies and criminology who have the skills to analyse these complex issues and respond quickly with tailored solutions are in demand by both government and the private sector. This practical course gives people working in the fields of policing, defence and security-related industries, law, policy advising or media a deep understanding of the different dimensions of security issues and criminology. You’ll gain both theoretical and practical knowledge of contemporary security and criminology issues, and develop an in-depth understanding of those issues – and how to respond effectively – at a global, regional and national level. You’ll also develop your understanding of the multifaceted and inter-related nature of security and criminology issues in the contemporary world.
