The course develops through three themes that combine to underpin criminology studies: Part A.Expert knowledge, Part B. Global reach and focus and Part C. Collaboration and innovation. Part D involves free elective studies.
 

  • A. Expert knowledge
    This will provide you with a foundational understanding of crime as a complex phenomenon, its social, economic and political impact, and the advantages and limitations associated with different strategies to address it. Students will gain an advanced understanding and develop critical thinking skills to reflect on important social issues such as inequality, vulnerability, and risk that have significant implications for the way we think about and deliver responses to crime, social justice, and security both in Australia and internationally.
  • B. Global reach and focus
    This will enable you to develop an understanding of crime as a truly global phenomenon. You will learn about national and international criminal threats and develop the capacity to think critically about the role of states in creating crime and social harm. From a comparative standpoint, students will study the ways that crime manifests in different jurisdictions and how different societies define, govern and respond to crime. Students will gain practical and theoretical knowledge.
  • C. Collaboration and Innovation
    You will develop a suite of transferable professional skills to respond effectively to pressing criminal concerns. Students will learn the skills to engage necessary stakeholders to allow them to effectively formulate, influence and evaluate crime and justice policies and practices in a variety of professional contexts. You will develop a critical understanding and develop advanced communication skills for collaborative problem solving and be competent in working in teams to address the problem of crime.
  • D. Free elective study
    Free elective units enable students to further their knowledge of criminology more broadly, or to select units from across the University in which they are eligible to enrol. For students in a double degree course, some units required for the other degree can also be credited as electives towards the criminology specialist degree.
