M.St In Applied Criminology and Police Management (Police Executive Programme)

883x431 crimbuilding

The Police Executive Programme's Master of Studies (M.St) in Applied Criminology and Police Management is designed to provide post-graduate education for present and future senior police leaders in crime prevention and harm-reduction issues, with a strong emphasis on evidence-based policy and practice.

The Master's course typically consists of three separate two-week blocks of lectures and supervision in Cambridge in each of the two years of the course (for a total of twelve weeks' contact time over 24 months). 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 analyse past, current and future practice, as part of what Professor Lawrence Sherman described as the 'future of policing research'.

The Police Executive Programme is distinct from the M.St in Applied Criminology Penology and Management course, which is designed for probation, prison and judicial practitioners. Students have access to the Radzinowicz Library of Criminology which houses one of the world's leading research collections on crime and criminology, and the opportunity to study in one of the world's foremost universities, surrounded by nearly 800 years of history.
