This programme draws on experience and expertise from law, criminology and psychology, providing you with the skills and knowledge required for a career within the criminal justice system.
This course is ideal if you are a serving or recently retired police officer, looking to study a range of areas within the field of criminal justice. The top-up is also ideal if you are working within criminal justice organisations or public services pursuing a degree in this field.
We will develop your research, presentation and critical thinking skills, to prepare you for professional employment in the criminal justice system and further study. The modules represent key areas of the criminal justice system, some of which are jointly delivered with police, law, psychology and criminology students. Modules focus on aspects of policing, such as protection of the public, operations, dealing with challenging behaviours and the politics of crime control. You have the opportunity to examine areas including sentencing, crime and punishment and cyber-crime.
You will have the option to study an area of special interest to you in much greater depth, and which may ultimately be relevant to a current or future employer.
If you have sufficient experience, this can be formally taken into account when gaining entry onto this top-up.
