Do you want to work for the police or a related criminal justice employer, such as the prison service, security industry or local government?
Our combination of real-life case studies, academic research and interactive learning will give you a deep understanding of the issues and policies involved in modern policing and rehabilitation.
Learn about and debate current issues such as sexual offence and fraud investigation, or counter-terrorism initiatives and cultural diversity. As you study, our modules will develop your skills in leadership, interpersonal communication and presentation, and give you opportunities for work-based learning, preparing you for a career in criminal justice when you graduate.
Our BSc (Hons) Policing and Criminal Justice degree is continually developed through our strong links with local police forces and criminal justice agencies. You’ll not only have access to the latest information and case studies, but the chance to attend talks and workshops by serving professionals and to make contact with people already working in the police and criminal justice system.
You’ll also take part in trips and activities such as visits to courts, while our own on-campus mock courtroom will allow you to examine the trial process and practice presenting evidence in front of a judge and jury.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.
The skills and knowledge you gain on this course will prepare you for work with many criminal justice organisations, such as the police, the prison service, local government and the security industry.
Our work-based learning module ‘Working in the Criminal Justice System’ will let you experience first-hand what it is like to work for one of these services, giving you a valuable insight into their working cultures and practices.
