Program description

Criminology and Policing BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

This combined Criminology and Policing BSc degree will prepare you for a career within the criminal justice system in roles, such as policing, research or youth work.

Taught by former police officers and internationally renowned academics, this course will give you a solid foundation in criminology and policing. You’ll explore the links between criminological theory, crime and victims, while placing an emphasis on approaches to policing in the UK.

The course explores the fundamentals of criminological theory and examines the institutions at the heart of the criminal justice system including the courts, police, prison and probation services.

This course will bring you to the forefront of the contemporary criminology and policing landscape. Our close links with organisations such as the Essex Police and Metropolitan Police allow us to invite practitioners from the criminal justice sector, who will give talks on subjects relevant to your study and include content from real cases. We also organise a Question Time style panel discussion, where you’ll get a chance to participate in a debate with a panel of course lecturers, probation officers, ex-offenders and police officers.
