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.Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Policing will allow you to balance an exploration of complex criminological perspectives with thepractical application of policing skills and knowledge.By considering the relationship between society and the criminal justice system, and simulating real-life activities such asinvestigating crime scenes, you’ll develop skills that will help you succeed professionally in the police service, or in a policyrelated / criminal justice agency environment.You’ll also develop skills in critical analysis and research methodologies, helping you become an independent learner with theability 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 developspecialisms 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 professionalsfrom 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, forexample a student recently carried out research on police officer demographics and recruitment, sponsored by CambridgeshireConstabulary.Throughout the course, you’ll be supported by our expert staff members through timetabled group meetings, individual meetingsand one-to-one personal tutoring. You’ll also have access to the University's student support groups and dedicated ARUCriminology groups on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
