Applications open for Bachelor of Arts in Applied Policing and Criminal Justice

The School of Law is now inviting applications for the next intake of the level 8 Bachelor of Arts in Applied Policing and Criminal Justice. The Bachelor of Arts in Applied Policing and Criminal Justice is a two-year, part-time, blended learning programme specifically designed for those who have completed the level 7 BA in Applied Policing, delivered at An Garda Síochána Training College in Templemore, or equivalent.

The BA provides a unique opportunity for learners to capitalise on their current expertise and to develop further skills and competencies that will be of benefit in navigating the challenging and evolving environment of the criminal justice system. Learners develop these skills through a progressive model of blended learning that is comprised of online lectures, student guide, interactive learning elements, recommended readings, and regular tutor led interactions.

As part of the programme, learners complete ten modules, delivered by the School of Law using an online e-learning platform, leading to the award of a level 8 honours degree. Learners combine taught modules with research modules in order to develop their cognitive and technical skills. Learners also complete a final year dissertation under the supervision of a faculty member with specific expertise in that area. This gives learners the opportunity to work independently on a topic that is of personal interest to them and allows them to conduct research under their own direction.

The application process for the 2018 intake for the level 8 BA in Applied Policing and Criminal Justice is now open. The closing date for applications is Friday 1st June at 12.00pm.  Full details on the programme, including a link to the Course Brochure and information on the application process, can be accessed on the programme website:
