Course summary

Course Summary

International law enforcement operates within an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Crime too is complex and is in constant flux, changing in type, scale, spread and impact. Traditional borders and boundaries are increasingly irrelevant, and law enforcement organisations respond by locating their efforts within an international frame of reference, and with a workforce that demonstrates high-quality, specialist law enforcement education. This course will see you develop conceptual and critical insights into contemporary issues in the theory, policy and practice of law enforcement, and apply your learning to your own jurisdictions. You'll explore local, regional and international perspectives on a range of law enforcement issues and provides you with the multi-disciplinary knowledge, understanding and skills in law enforcement within an international context. This course is specifically designed for those working in, or seeking to work in a career in law enforcement. This course aims to develop an advanced understanding of investigation and intelligence, as well as a sound theoretical and practical understanding of the contextual, ethical and justice issues related to law enforcement. It will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to become a leader in the field of law enforcement and to drive continual improvement in law enforcement policy and practice in your jurisdiction. You'll work alongside academics and external organisations to develop specialist knowledge and skills, and you may have the chance to apply these during your studies through real-world case examples. Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.

Careers and employability

The industry-focused nature of this course will ensure that you stand out from the crowd when it comes to job applications and pursuing your future career. You'll benefit from our strong links with the criminal justice sector both nationally and internationally and course content being influenced by consultants and specialists in the field.

It's also suitable for those looking to enhance their career opportunities and if you're seeking employment in criminal justice agencies operating at international, central, regional and local government levels, such as the Home Office, and local government. Graduates may go on to pursue a range of professional careers in criminal justice related work in either the statutory, commercial or community voluntary sectors. As a graduate from this course, you'll have gained a strong understanding of key themes and issues in this field as well as many transferable skills employers seek, such as complex writing, developing and implementing a research project, and the ability to present in-depth ideas. You will also have been helped and encouraged to articulate those skills in relation to particular occupations that you may be interested in pursuing.
