1 Designing Postgraduate Curricula For Transdisciplinary Fields: The case of security and crime science Dr Hervé Borrion* and Prof Richard Wortley, UCL Security Science DTC

2 Definitions Transdisciplinary research Crime Science Security Science DTC Aims Framework 1 st Year Conclusion Aim

3 Definitions Security and Crime Science “ The application of scientific methods and the deployment of any scientific disciplines in the interest of crime prevention, crime reduction and crime detection.” (Tilley, 2005)

4 Crime scientists should be able to… Characterize crime problems Elicit requirements Specify control principles and control measures Implement measures Evaluate them

5 And still be able to: Integrate crime theories, human and situational factors, as well as legal constraints and ethical risks in the development, deployment, implementation and evaluation phases.

6 Definitions Typology of Transdisciplinary Research: “Teams work using a shared conceptual framework, drawing together discipline-specific theories, concepts, and approaches to address a common problem”. (Rosenfield, 1992) “Questions without a compelling disciplinary basis” (Lattuca, 2001)

7 Induction week: European Security Research Conference, Belgium Centre for Doctoral Training

8 Security Science CDT Currently recruiting the 6 th student cohort Between 10 and 25 students per year Scholarships from research councils and industry Pool of supervisors across UCL Multidisciplinary cohort: Anthropology, Laws, Political Science, Criminology, Forensics, Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Architecture. Funded by EPSRC

9 Researcher should be able to… Develop new knowledge, new techniques, new tools to support the state of the art in crime science. And still be able to: Integrate crime theories, human and situational factors, as well as legal constraints and ethical risks in their work

10 Solutions to actual problems Application & Implication of their research Broader research skills Connection between different areas Creativity / Multidisciplinary Broadening their knowledge base We could do better

11 Shared conceptual framework (problem-solving)

12 Aim

15 Foundation in Security and Crime Science 15 credits Global Security Challenges 15 Risk and System Engineering 15 Principles of Information Security 15 Designing Research in Security Science 15 (*) Quantitative Methods (Statistics) 15 * Research Project 90 * Ethics, Security and Research- *discipline-specific Taught components

16 Theory, theory, and theory… Contextualization: Application & Implication of their research Critical thinking: Broader Research Methods Connection between different areas Creativity / Multidisciplinary: Horizontal learning Domain of Application v. discipline? Too broad? Researchers v. leaders? Conclusion
