Program Description

The three-year Bachelor in Crime (Investigative Studies) (BSc) course is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (CSFS) and explores traditional investigative methods used by the Police in addition to newer aspects of policing, such as evidence-based policing. You will also learn how to present professional reports in both a policing environment and within a court of law.

Our lecturers have first-hand experience of crime scene examination, policing and criminal justice. As well as benefitting from their knowledge, you will have guest lectures from visiting professionals and get an understanding of the workplace through visits to places such as the Crown Court, and other field trips.
