About

Overview

The BA Criminal Investigation with Policing Studies (Hons) degree at De Montfort University can teach you the skills to become a professional practitioner in the public or private policing sector. This programme is the ideal choice if you’re interested in studying policing or criminal investigation but do not necessarily wish to pursue a career in the police service. This provides opportunities for you to pursue a career as an investigator or intelligence officer in other law enforcement agencies.Taught by policing and criminology academics with substantial experience of criminal justice practice, in the first year you will get an introduction to criminology and the profession of policing, as well as learn how to research in the crime and justice sector and gain an understanding of the criminal justice system. In years two and three, you will study topics covering the leadership and management of contemporary issues in policing, research for effective practice and multi-agency working, as well as complete a dissertation on a subject of your own choice. Both years will have a bespoke progressive investigation taught module, which is designed to develop your critical understanding of operational and critical incident investigations within public and private law enforcement agencies and within the Criminal Justice System.
