BSC (HONS) Professional Policing

Description

Our degree in Professional Policing will provide you with a professional knowledge of the ethics, skills and attitudes that are critical to twenty-first century policing. The course has been designed to meet the requirements of the College of Policing National Curriculum for the role of a Police Constable under the National Policing Education Qualifications Framework.

Subject to validation, we will be offering the Pre-join Degree in Professional Policing – a qualification recognised by police services that is achieved prior to recruitment. You will study a range of key topics in the area of crime, criminology, law, terrorism, associated psychology, sociology and criminal investigation. You will also learn through realistic scenarios and the use of a crime suite. Optional modules will provide an opportunity to look deeper into issues such as Forensic and Criminal Psychology, Zemiology (the study of social harms), Cybercrime and Youth & Crime. The degree will provide you with all of the knowledge required prior to joining the police force and will also be of interest if you are looking to study at Masters level or work in the wider security and criminal justice sector. Please note the degree has a currency of 5 years following graduation for recruitment into policing and you must still apply to the police force and satisfy their eligibility criteria. Please contact the Police Service for more information.
