About Policing Studies and Forensic Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University

Policing is a subject that does not take place in a vacuum, indeed it is a subject that arouses great debate given that the police are such a powerful social institution, routinely engaging with diverse communities and social groups. It is this very public aspect of policing that provides the ongoing context for study and makes for heated and lively debate.

The course moves beyond taken for granted definitions and ideas, and critically evaluates claims to knowledge. This programme has a particular focus on forensic psychology within the context of policing, allowing you to explore the complex relationships between law enforcement, the perpetrators, victims and practitioners involved in the criminal justice and penal systems. The programme's BPS accreditation is pivotal for those wishing to enter the field of forensic psychology and related careers.

You are strongly encouraged to become a Special Police Constable, a police volunteer or to volunteer in some other way within the criminal justice field for the duration of your studies on the Policing Studies degree programmes. We will assist and support you to identify such opportunities and in making applications for such roles.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
