Bachelor of Criminology

Crime, how we define it, how we understand its causes, and the ways we respond to it provides a window into a society’s challenges, values, and aspirations. The Bachelor of Criminology offers a world-leading program to equip you with the professional skills, specialist knowledge, and key capabilities relevant to careers in a wide range of Criminology related fields.

Throughout your course, you’ll learn to identify credible evidence, to understand how to measure and analyze the impact of policy, and you’ll be challenged to apply abstract knowledge and to develop solutions to real-world problems of crime and justice.

The Bachelor of Criminology offers options to develop specialist knowledge of specific criminal concerns such as sexual violence, gendered violence, punishment, criminal justice processes, marginalization, drugs, cybercrimes, risk and surveillance, victimization and perpetration, youth crime and crime prevention and transnational justice practices. You will also have opportunities to travel internationally to meet criminal justice experts across Asia, Europe, and the Americas; to undertake field trips; to participate in internships.
