Criminology, Policing and Investigation

Want to start a career in criminal investigation? Our Criminology, Policing and Investigation University course has close ties to the West Midlands Police Force. Our degree offers an in-depth study of policing and criminal investigation, helping you develop your understanding of criminological thought, as well as historical, political and practical applications. This course offers a varied yet focused choice of subjects through which you will be able to develop your interests within the specialised field of criminology. Within this course, students will explore the who, what, where, why and when of criminology. That is the understanding of who and why people commit crime, where crime takes place, and the motivations for different crime types. This is done through a range of exciting and engaging modules which are taught by expert lecturers who are well published in the field. In this programme we explore the concept of policing and how different countries have chosen to manage crime. We use a variety of trips, guest speakers and specialist workshops to give students a wide range of understanding of policing. Specialist facilities include realistic, simulated environments such as the crime scene room and interviewing suite, allows students to simulate police interviewing environments for both suspects and witnesses, with access to tape recording and video playback analysis. You will benefit from well-established links with a variety of external bodies, including police forces, charities, pressure groups, criminal justice agencies, criminal rehabilitation probation service and prisons. **For full details, visit our website.**
