Who is this course for?
The demand on the police service is becoming increasingly more complex and the issues involved require a wider knowledge base and new skill sets to address them effectively.
Applied Policing Practice degree offered at Canterbury Christ Church University supports students in developing their knowledge and their research interests.Key to this programme is also leadership and management which is critical to the success of any police reform and local organisational change programme. Our new programme will be based around building new postgraduate ‘policing themes’ that can be adapted to deliver the most contemporaneous issues in crime, policing and the CJS, and then, just as quickly, respond to new reforms or challenges that may confront the police/CJS in the future.

We expect that a significant amount of the study programme will be through the delivery of four modules (dependant on which post graduate option the student chooses to take):
- Organisation, development and leadership: Leadership, management, decision making and reform.
- Evidence based Interventions: Evidence based policing, evaluation and the use of research in problem solving.
- Action research and research methodology. These two modules will provide the opportunity to learn about different research approaches and the issues around applying them in the workplace.
- Year two will focus on the completion of a dissertation with one to one support from a supervisor. This will utilise the skills students glean from the research methods module and provide some useful local research for the force area.
