MSc in Global Crime Justice and Security
This programme provides an excellent opportunity to study new global developments in the field of crime, criminal law, justice and security. The MSc is suitable both for students familiar with law, politics or criminology from undergraduate study and for those who are new to these subjects.
As a student on this programme, you will have access to the expertise and insight of our active community of researchers, international scholars and local practitioners. The programme is truly interdisciplinary with teaching provided by academics from both Edinburgh Law School and the School of Social & Political Science.
The two compulsory courses on the programme introduce you to different forms and contexts of global crime and how we respond to these, whilst the wide range of courses allows you to tailor the programme to your area of interest.
You will benefit from top-quality training in research methods and skills essential both for doctoral study, or employment in the field of criminal justice and security.
The programme can be taken full-time over 12 months, or part-time over 24 months (due to current UKBA regulations, part-time study is only available for UK or EU citizens).
The University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Law School is an Internationally recognised Higher Education institution accredited to provide advanced education. It should be noted that a postgraduate masters degree in Law from the University of Edinburgh does not qualify for entry into the Scottish (or other country's) Legal Practice. Advice from your local Bar Association or Law Society should be sought if you wish to pursue legal practice in your country of domicile.
