Gain a critical understanding of criminology and learn from some of Australia’s leading criminologists.
Designed for anyone wanting to further their career in criminal justice, our criminology program addresses contemporary crime and criminal justice issues in theory, policy and practice. You’ll scrutinise crime in modern Australia and compare it with a wide range of local and global community concerns.
Taught in partnership with the Sydney Institute of Criminology, the program recognises the importance of research, policy and applied learning, and is useful if you work with public and private criminal justice and social welfare agencies with a focus on crime prevention, forensic psychology, public policy, social research and legal practice.
Postgraduate study in criminology is suitable for non-legal professionals such as police officers, correctional officers, forensic experts, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, probation and parole officers, youth workers, policy officers and journalists, as well as legal professionals such as solicitors, barristers, magistrates and judges.
