Gain a critical understanding of criminology and learn from some of Australia’s leading criminologists.
Designed for anyone with an interest in crime, punishment and criminal justice, our criminology program addresses contemporary questions about crime and control within theoretical and policy contexts, exploring crime in modern Australia and comparing it with a wide range of local and global community concerns. The course of study is particularly relevant if you have a background in social sciences, research or social policy.
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 psychology and psychiatry, public policy, social research and legal practice.
Postgraduate study in criminology is suitable for legal professionals such as solicitors, barristers, magistrates and judges as well as non-legal professionals such as police officers, correction officers, forensic experts, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, probabion and parole officers, youth workers and policy officers.
