Course summary

Develop a critical understanding of current issues in both criminology and policing with our theoretical and practical modules. Jump-start your career in the criminal justice sector, or progress it to graduate level.Full description Study with a department ranked 8th in the UK for Criminology (The Guardian University Guide 2018)Feel supported by our close community of students and staff, including dedicated social media groupsLearn from professional criminal justice practitioners through lectures, workshops and other activitiesTake part in events including field trips, guest lectures and our end-of-year Criminology ConferenceJoin forces with PIER, our Policing Institute for the Eastern Region, with links to local and regional forces and policing bodies and chief officers at local and national levelOur BA (Hons) Criminology and Policing will allow you to balance an exploration of complex criminological perspectives with the practical application of policing skills and knowledge.By considering the relationship between society and the criminal justice system, and simulating real-life activities such as investigating crime scenes, you’ll develop skills that will help you succeed professionally in the police service, or in a policy-related / criminal justice agency environment. You’ll also develop skills in critical analysis and research methodologies, helping you become an independent learner with the ability to manage your own projects and research.As well as completing core modules in criminology and policing, our optional modules will give you the chance to develop specialisms in areas such as leadership and management, public policy, and issues concerning social and political inequality.On some modules, a significant part of your teaching will be delivered by policing and criminal justice practitioners - for example, 'Basic Criminalistics' will be delivered by former and active Crime Scene Investigators.Through our relationship with regional police forces and practitioners, you’ll also have opportunities to engage with professionals from the criminal justice sector through guest lectures (including those organised by our Policing Institute for the Eastern Region), workshop events, study trips and research projects. You may also have opportunities to work closely with local police forces, for example a student recently carried out research on police officer demographics and recruitment, sponsored by Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
