Why choose this program?

This program is scheduled to commence in Trimester 2-2019.

Want to know how to stop crime before it even happens? What motivates people to break the law and what deters them?

This new double degree will combine the study of what makes criminals tick with an understanding of the justice system and policy making processes. With a better understanding of how policy is created and applied, plus an understanding of crime and criminal behavior, you will be equipped to influence the policy underpinning the justice system to ultimately deter crime rather than simply responding to criminal behavior.

This degree will give you a better understanding of the causes and consequences of complex crime and criminal justice issues and just how it is currently dealt with by government at local, national and global levels. Could you make a difference?

Attendance information

This program is offered full-time on-campus at the Nathan and Gold Coast campuses. Students may choose to study courses at other campuses where the program structure allows.
