Overview

During the Policing Studies (Hons)  at Liverpool John Moores University programme you will undertake a critical exploration of contemporary policing issues as you develop skills and prepare for your professional practice. It moves beyond taken for granted definitions and ideas, and critically evaluates claims to knowledge.

Career

Once you complete this degree, you will have the knowledge, skills and qualification that makes you an attractive candidate for recruitment by the police service or other employers in this field, such as security and risk management.

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.

Successful completion of the BA (Hons) programme does not in itself provide any guarantee of recruitment as a trainee Police Constable.
