If you are considering a career in the uniformed Public Services or aspiring to be involved in a management role in a public services related career then this course is for you. The programme provides you with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for employment in both the uniformed and non-uniformed Public Services, both in the UK and overseas.
The programme would equally suit those who are new to this area and those already employed in it and who wish to progress to management level roles. Successful graduates will be able to embark on careers in organisations such as the Emergency Services, National Probation Service, Armed Forces (Officer level), HMRC, Criminal Justice Agencies and the Civil Service or alternatively continue their studies on a relevant postgraduate course.
A key feature of the BA (Hons) programme is the dissertation, which will require you to work in close supervision with your tutor to plan and construct a research proposal, design a research study, collect data drawing informed conclusions and make recommendations. This approach is very individualised and enables you to pursue research, which is relevant to your personal interests and chosen area of professional practice. When studying on the BA (Hons) programme you will experience more independent learning techniques which are fully supported by tutorials and individual supervision activities as well as the VLE.
The programme prides itself for having very close links with both the uniformed and non-uniformed Public Services to further enhance your student experience whilst studying. You will have the opportunity to visit various public service orgnisations, departments and specialist units and be provided with a number of keynote guest speakers from the sector to further enhance the curriculum.
