Undertaking a BA (Hons) Crime and Criminal Justice degree teaches you many new skills and enhances many others. While you are learning to work with offenders, preparing for court and understanding crime scene management, you can be assured that you are also developing your critical thinking skills. Critical thinking is vital when working in any area of the criminal justice system. The ability to read through and analyse evidence, to judge the accuracy of statements, and follow patterns and profiles is vital to the work of many within criminal justice law. However, it is also a valued set of skills in many other professions and is essential to those looking to go into business for themselves.

Why is Critical Thinking Important Outside the Criminal Justice System?

Critical thinking involves looking beyond the surface of a question, problem or puzzle and being able to take it apart, understand its intricacies, and report accurately on what you find. It helps you to comprehend an issue or idea better and to express your understanding to others. This is just as important in business and everyday life as it is in international criminal justice, UK courts, or any other aspect of the criminal justice system. Essential critical thinking skills that are important in criminal justice law include:
• Analysis
• Decision making
• Evaluation
• Explanation
• Inference
• Interpretation
• Observation
• Problem solving
• Reflection
