Criminology Skills (1011CCJ)

This core, introductory course introduces students to key practical and academic skills necessary for their criminology and criminal justice undergraduate degree and beyond in the workplace. Students are invited to reflect on the employment opportunities open to them when they graduate, and the skills necessary to achieve their employment goals. Through the lectures, tutorials and assessments, students will build a portfolio of their skills, and consider the opportunities and resources available to them at Griffith for increasing employability. The course focuses on the key skills of critical thinking, information literacy and communication. Students will become competent in searching for, and evaluating, criminological materials so they can think critically about criminological issues, and present their own ideas in a logical and convincing way. Students will be introduced to a range of tools to assist in their assessments beyond this course. The course concludes with some reflections on the opportunities available to students at Griffith to assist their professional development, and plan for their future careers. Throughout the course, an emphasis is placed on practical activities. This is based on an understanding that students learn best by doing things and by practicing their skills.
