During the Transnational Organised Crime program offered by Staffordshire University you’ll examine the recent emergence of transnational organised crime, its historical precedents at a global level and law enforcement responses. You’ll consider how Transnational Organised Crime is represented by the media.
You’ll study contemporary global issues such as drug and human trafficking, international terrorism, illegal arms trading and financial crime through the lens of critical criminology.
You’ll study unique topics, taking a critical perspective and work with our experts in sociology and criminology.
Employability is embedded throughout the course and you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a dissertation project within your place of work or volunteer within an organisation, business or government department relating to the issues covered on the MA course.
