The Police Executive Programme's Master of Studies (M.St) in Applied Criminology and Police Management is designed to provide training for senior police officers in the study of crime and harm-reduction issues, with a strong emphasis on evidence-based policy and practice.
The Master's course normally consists of two weeks of lectures and supervision in Cambridge three times a year in each of two years (for a total of twelve weeks' contact time). In addition, students complete written work between each of the Cambridge teaching blocks. Students who successfully undertake only one year of study, rather than proceeding to the Master's year, will be awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Criminology and Police Management.
The programme is underpinned by several key concepts, including Targeting resources, Testing practices, and Tracking delivery of services. The programme helps students learn through continuing professional development, collaborative study, small group discussions, critical thinking and reflective practice. Participants on the M.St. programme are encouraged to reflect on, review and analyze past, current and future practice.
