Course content

In a world where information technology is rapidly evolving and our dependence upon it continually increasing, the growth of cybercrime is a major concern.

Our MSc Criminology (Cybercrime and Cybersecurity) offers you a unique opportunity to develop specialised skills in both cybercrime and cybersecurity. Our MSc is currently the only one in the UK providing a combined approach to cybercrime and cybersecurity.

This pioneering course will advance your understanding of the main theoretical approaches to cybercrime. It will teach you the technical skills required to address fundamental challenges in the cybersecurity sector.

What you will study

Our MSc Criminology (Cybercrime and Cybersecurity) has been created to meet the growing demand for enhanced knowledge and practical skills in the area of cybercrime and its control.

Our course offers you the opportunity to work with leading theorists in the field of cybercrime and with experts from the Surrey Centre for Cybersecurity - one of only 14 recognised as Academic Centres of Excellence by GCHQ and the UK Government. 

The course also draws upon our long-established expertise in social research methodologies, enabling you to conduct effective research in the field of cybercrime and to think in a logical and informed manner about related criminological problems.

Placements

A distinctive part of this course is the opportunity to have a placement at a criminal justice agency or a research institute for four weeks during the spring break. The practical experience and insights you will gain will support your learning.

Conferences

You will attend a residential weekend conference in November, alongside PhD students and teaching staff. This provides a less formal atmosphere for discussions concerning criminology, research and related themes. It includes lectures from eminent guest speakers and members of staff, seminars and small group discussions.

You are not required to attend the conference to complete the course, but it’s strongly encouraged. Students are not directly charged for attending.
