The BA (Hons) in Criminal Justice Studies is a three year degree course designed to equip the student with general knowledge and transferable skills while focusing on the broad theme of criminal justice. It is a multidisciplinary course.
You can choose to spend an extra year (Year 3) where you will undertake a criminal justice placement as part of the academic year. Students who take this option will graduate after four years with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Applied Criminal Justice Studies.
While this course is both inter-disciplinary and multidisciplinary in order to help students develop general academic skills, it is designed with those in mind who would like to enter the criminal justice professions and seeks to cater for their specific educational requirements.
Students can graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Applied Criminal Justice Studies.
