Overview

Interested in crime and justice? A degree in criminology examines the complexity of crime and the way society responds to it, seeking to better understand the dynamics of criminality by looking at the big picture. A Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice covers a broad range of topics including justice, conflict, risk, security, policing, state crime, alternative justice systems, criminalisation and regulation, all while engaging contemporary real-word issues such as victimisation, drug-related harm, organised crime and community safety. Key study areas include the nature of crime, how crime is defined and measured, media reporting and portrayal of crime, and what factors lead people to commit crime.
