Recommended for students with an interest in criminology, social justice and the justice system.

The course provides a comprehensive understanding of the nature of criminology and justice and the principal disciplines of law, political science, psychology and sociology, which inform criminological and justice-related issues.

It adopts a contemporary, international approach to criminology and justice education in developing well-educated practitioners. Students examine the nature of crime and social control, as well as a broad range of areas in the domain of justice, including policing, courts, law, corrections and alternative dispute resolution.


Provides students with a unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge in the criminal justice system, with a focus on offender management.

The major develops students' interpersonal and leadership skills, while building a comprehensive understanding of the theories of offender management and motivational change.

The major is relevant to students with an interest in criminology and justice, but also has a wider appeal to social work, psychology, security and other students in the humanities discipline.
