Degree study image

The Centre for Policing Research and Learning have identified a number of online Structured Honours Degrees (BSc or BA) that can be studied part-time or full-time, aimed at specific police-related subjects. Alternatively, police officers and staff can select specific modules of interest, that when combined can form an Open Degree Qualification that is unique for their interests.

Obtaining a Degree can enhance CDP and enable the learner to progress to higher levels of study, thus creating further career opportunities within the Police.


Structured Honours Degrees (BSc or BA)

BA (Honours) Social Sciences

In a fast changing world the social sciences seek answers to the big questions we face as a society. Those answers inform the work of anyone needing to base their decisions on the best available evidence – civil servants, policy makers, business executives and many more. Half of your studies will be interdisciplinary social science and sociology, giving you a firm grounding in knowledge and ideas central to the social sciences. For the other half, you can specialise in criminology, economics, geography, politics, psychology, religious studies or sociology, or you can choose a combination of modules that most suits your interests. Whatever path you take, you will acquire valuable transferable skills opening up employment opportunities in private, public and voluntary sector organisations.

Duration: 6 years (Part time)
Course code: R23

BA (Honours) Health and Social Care

In today's fast-changing care sector, professionals at all levels need to be proactive and flexible to succeed. This degree provides a sound and critical understanding of health and social care policy, theory and practice, and the skills you need for effective practice in a diverse, multidisciplinary environment. You’ll learn how ethical, legal, social, economic and political factors influence the provision and development of services; and gain the critical and analytical skills that underpin evidence-based practice.

Duration: 6 years (Part time)
