On this course, you’ll study current research on the extent and nature of fraud and corruption, and the strategies used to combat them. You’ll choose from core subjects like criminology and cybercrime, and choose your specialisms, including International Fraud and Corruption, International and Transnational Offending and Managing Investigations, depending on the career path you want to pursue.
