Course content

This course specialises in leadership and management in the police, probation, prisons, youth offending sectors or for anyone interested in security related or policing roles. You will explore and engage with the latest criminological research and trends. Learning is embedded throughout the course with a theoretical and empirical study of criminological and penological theory and criminal justice policy and practice. Our research practice is based in Criminal Justice, so gives our students a social science orientation – distinct from MBAs in leadership and management.
