Postgraduate study in Policing and Criminology
Established just under ten years ago, the Department of Law and Criminology at Derby is the first academic institution in the UK to combine the study of policing, criminology and law in one academic department. In that period, we have become a world-leading provider of police and crime education with thousands of police officers studying our awards internationally.
We are also proud to be the home of the International Policing and Justice Institute - a world class police education solutions, research and innovation centre.
Our reputation is growing and our research is cutting-edge. We work with many regional, national and international organisations on projects and training including Royal Malaysia Police, Gangmasters Licensing Authority and Nottingham City Crime and Drug Partnership. This all means you’ll be studying at a University that is at the heart of the latest developments in this field.
