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 also introduce you to some of the technical skills required to address challenges in the cybersecurity sector.

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.
