Program Description

The Bachelor in Criminology and Policing (BA) at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) will allow you to balance the exploration of complex criminological perspectives with the practical application of policing skills and knowledge. By considering the relationship between society and the criminal justice system, and simulating real-life activities such as investigating crime scenes, you’ll develop skills that will help you succeed professionally in the police service, or in a policy-related / criminal justice agency environment.
