This programme is designed for students who want to work in the public services and for those who have an interest in entering the world of criminology and related public service employment.

It will allow students to understand how society functions and how criminals are conditioned to behave and the role of public services in a changing society. It will also look at how the public services can use this same information to be more effective in the fight against crime. Students will finish with relevant theoretical and practical knowledge that enables them to progress to a final year top-up in Policing, Criminology and will aid the understanding of wider public services and non-crime focussed societal activities.
