Program Overview

Program Description:

Our Crime Science course is the first of its kind offered in Australia and one of the first in the world. In this course, you’ll learn about the immediate causes of burgeoning crime rates and the why, where, when, by whom, and how a particular offence was committed.

You’ll engage with areas of science that impact on the solving and prevention of crime and develop an appreciation of the need for multi‐disciplinary problem solving.

As part of your studies, you will examine approaches used to identify crime hotspots and how patterns of crime have changed over time. You will examine criminal cases and learn how to critically evaluate police procedures, the judicial process and the interpretation of the forensic evidence.

You can combine this course with Criminal Behaviour or Legal Studies to add depth and breadth to your understanding of Criminology. You may also combine this major with studies in another area, such as Forensic Biology and Toxicology.

When you graduate with our new Bachelor of Criminology, you will have the skillset required for employment opportunities within the court and corrections, police services, youth work, community groups and government departments and criminal forensics.
