Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Criminology

The Bachelor of Arts allows you to choose from over forty areas of study, and to develop the research skills, advanced discipline knowledge and self-reliance to acquire information, assess evidence, and convey complex ideas. You will be able to enrich your global awareness through a multitude of internships, professional engagement, and overseas study opportunities such as the Monash Arts Global Immersion Guarantee, preparing you to live and work in complex and culturally diverse environments while building a community of like-minded peers. You'll develop a rich understanding of human difference and communication, and the complexities of social organization.

The Bachelor of Criminology is the study of crime and social control: how we define it, what causes it, and how we respond to it provide a window into our society. The degree will give you an understanding of victimization and perpetration, and inequality and its impacts. You will consider the local, national, and global aspects of crime and justice while assessing society’s changing responses. Learn about the crime committed by individuals, groups, organizations and states, and the mechanisms of the criminal justice system including police, courts, and corrections. You will engage with policy leaders in crime and justice, and experience criminal justice in action in a range of international, national, and local contexts. Take the opportunity to combine criminology with areas of study that offer a natural pairing such as psychology, sociology, behavioral studies, gender studies, anthropology.
