Program description

Police Studies Procedure and Investigation BSc (Full-time)

Our Police Studies, Procedure and Investigation BSc course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the role of the modern police service. It will enable you to gain a wide range of knowledge about police investigation techniques and the skills that are required to become a police officer. The course offers the opportunity to train as a special constable and gain valuable work experience in the policing sector.

Policing in the UK is undergoing some of the most radical changes since Sir Robert Peel first launched the Metropolitan Police in 1829. The challenges that the modern day policing practitioner faces are often high risk and fast moving in a context of increasing accountability. There’s now a strong professional commitment at a senior level, which openly encourages policing practitioners to develop to a degree level.

This unique course in our criminology subject cluster is focused on preparing you to become a senior member of the police force. Building upon both practical and theoretical insights, the course will develop your knowledge across a wide range of policing contexts. It’ll also encourage critical and analytical thinking, whilst preparing you for a role in twenty-first century policing.
