PerpetuityARC Training is relaunching its updated MSc International Security and Risk Management, with the University of West London (UWL). Applications to study for this academic qualification in the field of security management are open now, for intakes in February and October 2021.
The MSc International Security and Risk Management course combines theoretical knowledge with professional best practice, and refines research methods, organisers say. It is delivered as an online-distance learning course (through a bespoke and interactive online learning platform). You can study for it one year full-time or two years part-time. Students will take five modules, and then complete a dissertation on a related topic of their choice to complete the degree. The modules are:
– Security Management: Prevention and Design
– Strategic Security Management and Leadership
– Security Management: Risk Management and Loss Prevention
– Security Management and Delivering Value
– Research Methods; and
Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost for Health at UWL, Prof Anthony Woodman, says: “The field of security is an area of strategic priority in education and research at the University of West London. This new MSc programme provides an educational opportunity uniquely tailored to security practitioners to help them further develop their potential, and complements our growing suite of courses in the areas of criminology, security and police studies including a new Professional Doctorate in Policing, Crime and Security.”
The Linx International Group’s Director of Training, Angus Darroch-Warren, pictured, is leading the subject matter specialists and tutors. He says: “PerpetuityARC Training is proud to be working in partnership with UWL and renowned academics such as Professor Alison Wakefield. We are looking forward to building on the success of our MSc programme and welcoming the first cohort to this new look course in February.”
Professor of Criminology and Security Studies at the UWL, Alison Wakefield, adds: “Academic courses are increasingly valuable to security practitioners within a competitive job market and the increasingly complex strategic environment in which security is delivered. They must take account of a wide range of risks, including crime, cyber-attack, terrorism and other civil emergencies, and respond to them in accordance with a structured, risk management-based approach while being adaptable to uncertainties.” Wakefield adds: “This course will significantly enhance the subject knowledge of the student and their wider skill-set, enabling them to solve security problems much more confidently, but also enhance their employability skillset as a security professional.”
