Course summary

The BSc Criminology with Cyber Crime and Security (including a Foundation Year) course offers an exciting and comprehensive exploration of the multifaceted field of criminology with a specialised focus on cybercrime and security. This interdisciplinary course equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, analyse, and combat the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats and digital crimes. Students build a strong foundation in criminological theories, criminal justice systems, and research methodologies. They also delve into the fundamentals of cybersecurity, learning about topics such as encryption, network security, and digital forensics. This foundational knowledge prepares students to tackle more advanced topics in the subsequent years. As students progress, they explore a wide range of criminological subjects, including criminal offending, victimology, and the social aspects of crime. Simultaneously, they deepen their expertise in cybercrime and security, studying topics such as cyberattacks, ethical hacking, and cyber law and policy. Throughout the course, students engage in practical exercises, case studies, and real-world simulations to develop hands-on skills in cybersecurity and digital investigations. They also have opportunities for experiential learning with law enforcement agencies, cybersecurity firms, or other relevant organisations to gain practical experience in the field. Upon completion of the BSc Criminology with Cyber Crime and Security course, graduates are well-prepared for careers in law enforcement, cybersecurity, digital forensics, and risk management. They are equipped to address the growing challenges of cybercrime while contributing to the broader field of criminology. This unique blend of criminological and cyber expertise makes them highly sought-after professionals in an increasingly digital world. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Once the Foundation Year has been completed successfully, you can then go on to complete your degree.
