From the Prison Service to the Armed Forces, through work placements and disaster planning, this course will give you first-hand experience of the public services and help you move ahead in your chosen career. Based on our Cambridge campus, with access to all of our university’s facilities, you’ll get first-hand experience of the uniformed public services through work-based learning and improve your academic knowledge in the classroom. Our modules will help you to develop important, transferable skills in leadership, interpersonal communication, financing, and presentation; and to learn about contemporary issues including equality and cultural diversity, disaster planning and political ideologies. You’ll also get the chance to focus on specific areas of interest in your work, like crime control, workplace cultures or deviance. Our degree has been developed, and continues to develop, through strong links with the fire, police, prison and ambulance services, HM Revenue & Customs, and the Armed Forces. Talks and classes given by serving professionals are a key feature of this course and you’ll have the opportunity to go on different trips and activities, as well as completing work placements.
