Excellence in drama and cyber security captured in new degree offerings

Posted on 25/06/2013

New for 2014: BSc in Computer Science with Information Security specialism

From 2014, Royal Holloway will offer a number of new degree programmes for undergraduate students, across the science and arts faculties.

The portfolio of new programmes will include two that highlight Royal Holloway’s expertise in drama and cyber security.  

The three-year BA degree in Drama and Dance will harness the Department's expertise and experience in teaching physical theatre. This new programme from the top ten-rated Department of Drama and Theatre will combine theory of performance-making, study of theatrical texts and the history of different styles of dance and drama, with creative and practical projects to make and perform original work.

Similarly, the BSc in Computer Science with Information Security specialism, will capture Royal Holloway’s expertise in the cyber security field. The degree will offer a real-world focus, with students receiving a solid grounding in Computer Science in addition to courses introducing them to highly relevant aspects of information security including network security, malicious software and cryptography.

Royal Holloway’s Information Security Group (ISG) is one of the largest and most established security groups in the world. It has received Academic Centre of Excellence status by the UK intelligence agency GCHQ and is recognised by Government and industry, having been selected to form part of the UK’s first Research Institute to investigate the science behind cyber security and awarded a £4m Doctoral Training Centre in Cyber Security.

In addition, there will be over 20 new programmes on offer from 2014, including BA Philosophy (single honours), BA English & History, BSc Criminology and Psychology and a series of new Masters programmes focussed on ‘Big Data’ (Data Science and Analytics, Computational Finance and Machine Learning)
