Course summary

This Policing and Criminal Justice Studies degree is ideal if you would like to develop a deeper understanding of the police and criminal justice system and are looking to pursue a career in this field. You will be taught by course tutors who have many years’ experience working in the sector and will cover aspects of law, criminology and social sciences. Throughout the degree you will be challenged to explore the changing role of the Police and consider the influence of research on policing practice. You will develop valuable professional skills such as teamwork, communication and your ability to problem solve. This degree is approved by the College of Policing. You will be supported to find a work placement to develop your professional skills and many of our students volunteer as special constables.This degree will equip you with the practical experience and theoretical knowledge now required to join the Police Force as a Police Constable in England and Wales. However, there are no guarantees of entry to a police force on completion of the BA (Hons) Police and Criminal Justice Studies (Top-Up). Police forces specify their own entry requirements and as a result, the recruitment process differs for each force. Career opportunities include a range of roles in the police, probation, prison service, youth offending, Ministry of Defence Police and the Civil Nuclear Constabulary. You may also choose to progress onto a Masters degree or PGCE if you wish to go into teaching.
