Bachelor of Criminal Justice
Contribute to the welfare and safety of your community with a career in community justice or law enforcement.
In our Bachelor of Criminal Justice you’ll gain in-depth knowledge of our justice systems as well as a holistic approach to community justice.
You will study the law and restorative justice models and learn the contributing factors to why people interact with the legal system (including mental health, drug use and childhood trauma).
Be a part of criminal and community justice systems that aim to meet community standards and change rates of offending. You’ll graduate work-ready in areas that keep people safe and support the legal system, including:
- the courts
- youth justice.
You will learn in a dynamic classroom environment that tests your ideas, builds your practical skills and strengthens your foundational knowledge. In your final year you will undertake a key industry placement to ensure you're confident and work-ready upon graduation.
You’ll gain an excellent understanding of the connected systems that contribute to criminal justice.
