Postgraduate Certificate in Policing and Criminal Investigation
The Postgraduate Certificate in Policing and Criminal Investigation is an online course that is designed to introduce topics relating to policing, criminal investigations and psychology. During this course students will get to learn about the large range of methods used to investigate major crimes, such as homicide and sexual assault, while also critically assessing effective police leadership and partnerships. A strong emphasis is also placed on the function of psychology in supporting criminal investigations.
With the help of program materials, students will develop a comprehensive knowledge of modern-day psychological and criminological theory, along with policing and social policy. Upon completion of this program, graduates will have a complete understanding of the evolving nature of policing with a special focus on social and government policy, leadership and partnership working. They will also have the opportunity to develop new analytical and critical skills that are valuable in various professional environments.
This 8-month, online course is a perfect alternative to campus-based, full-time study and is ideal for those students interested in discovering how criminal investigation or policing works, or if you are attracted to a career in these fields. If you already work in these environments, this course will improve your career prospects and knowledge.
Entry requirements are flexible and are based on both academic merit and work-based experience.
Upon completion of this Postgraduate Certificate, students are offered the opportunity to progress on to the Postgraduate Diploma in Criminology and Criminal Psychology (awarded after 120 credits) and a full Masters in Criminology and Criminal Psychology (awarded after 180 credits).
