Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Bachelor of Criminology offers courses in criminological theory and its application in criminal justice policy and broader society. While the degree is primarily focused on criminology as the study of the sociology of crime and deviance, students will also take subjects that form part of the growing field of crime science, such as considering crime reduction strategies using statistical data analysis and geographic information systems. Students will also gain a basic grounding in Australian law. Through their study, students will develop the ability to apply criminological knowledge and research methods to a variety of real world contexts, while demonstrating a capacity to employ a 'criminological imagination' by thinking critically about social structures and power. Central to this will be an understanding of the link between policy and research, and an ability to make policy recommendations on the basis of research findings. Given the growing national and international focus on security, social order and well-being, the Bachelor of Criminology will place graduates in an excellent position with regards to the job market and contributing towards society as experts on criminological issues in a range of social, cultural and scientific contexts.
