The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

In recent years, issues of terrorism and organised crime have gained an unprecedented profile, provoked significant social concern and dominated both law and order and many wider social policy agendas. We address key critical issues surrounding organised criminality and terrorism in contemporary society. We involve multi-level analyses of organised crime as a concept, alongside the impacts of urbanisation, migration and globalisation upon both the practice of crime and the ways in which we understand them. In addition, you address cutting-edge critical, conceptual and theoretical analyses of terrorism and counter-terrorism.

MSc Organised Crime, Terrorism and Security provides you with a strong grounding in the key theories and issues within the wider discipline of criminology. You also receive advanced training in the skills and techniques needed to undertake high quality research in this and other criminological areas of inquiry. Our conceptual and skills-based tuition will provide a substantial foundation for careers within related academic, public, and private sector realms.

A Masters course is an academically rigorous programme during which you explore your subject in depth, reaching a high level of specialist knowledge. You draw on knowledge and skills from your undergraduate study or your professional life to produce work of a high academic standard, informed by current thinking and debate.
A Masters course lasts for twelve months (full-time), starting in October, and consists of taught modules during your autumn and spring terms, and normally a research-based dissertation or other project-based work submitted in September. Your balance of modules and research varies according to the subject but, typically, your research counts for 60 credits and there are 120 credits of modules, varying from 10 to 40 credits each. (If you are from the EU, then our Masters courses are regarded as second-cycle qualifications under the Bologna Declaration and consist of 90 ECTS credits).
In some subjects, Postgraduate or Graduate Certificates and Diplomas are available, which last for six to nine months (full-time) and consist of 60 or 120 credits, respectively. These include the modules and assessed work of a Masters, without a dissertation. Our Graduate Diplomas equip those with a Bachelors with knowledge to proceed to a Masters in a different subject.
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.
