Parramatta , New South Wales ,Australia

Master of International Criminology

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, globalisation both shapes, and is shaped by, crime and its perpetrators. This new degree explores the changing dynamics of crime as it crosses national borders, challenges traditional forms of crime control and justice, and effects diverse societies in equally diverse ways.

Covering a range of topics including genocide, environmental harm, corporate crime, the International Criminal Court, transitional justice and human rights, the degree takes you on a journey of critical thinking about some of the most urgent issues facing humanity. With flexible learning options available, the degree has you set to pursue a range of professional, policy and community roles in law enforcement, prosecution, global governance and crime prevention. Early exit points at Graduate Certificate, and Graduate Diploma level are embedded within this Masters programme.
