Security and Policing Degrees


Members of the ICPS are also actively engaged in the delivery of the MSc International Security and Risk Management.

This Masters security course will develop the practical and theoretical skills needed to operate in today’s challenging national and international policing and security environment.

You will have the opportunity to examine key security issues including terrorism, political violence, cyber security and warfare and the threats to national infrastructure posed by transnational organised crime.

There is a strong practical element: we will teach you how to obtain intelligence from a range of reliable and credible sources and how to analyse this intelligence in order to inform and influence investigations both on and off line. You learn about covert operations and develop interviewing techniques, investigation skills and investigation management techniques.

The course makes full use of state-of-the-art technology for immersive learning, as well as guest speakers from the CIA, FBI and UK Foreign Office and independent security sector.
