The Policing Studies with Foundation Year (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University programme takes students on a critical exploration of contemporary policing issues as they develop skills and prepare for their professional practice.
Police forces are powerful institutions that routinely engage with diverse communities and social groups. It is this very public aspect of policing which provides the ongoing context for study and makes for a heated and lively debate.
It is this very public aspect of policing that provides the ongoing context for study and makes for heated and lively debate. The course moves beyond taken for granted definitions and ideas, and critically evaluates claims to knowledge.
By the end of your Foundation Year you will have learnt how to reference, present, think critically and write academically.
Choosing to progress onto Level 6 to complete the full BA (Hons) Policing Studies degree will further widen your career options. Alternatively you may consider pursuing a postgraduate degree in Criminal Justice or Law, or a career that is not directly concerned with policing e.g. roles within the armed services, prison service, social work or criminal justice-related roles within the Civil Service.
