What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Criminology and Bachelor of Information Technology double degree equips students with industry-relevant specialist skills to prepare for working and living in a world of constant technological, environmental, political and population change.

Criminology is the study of crime and social control. Crime, how we define it, understanding its causes, and the ways we respond to it provides a window into a society’s challenges, values and aspirations. You’ll consider the local, national and global aspects of crime and justice and become familiar with a range of lenses for understanding and assessing the efficiency and impact of society’s changing understandings and responses. You’ll gain an understanding of victimisation and perpetration, inequality and its impacts, approaches to understanding crime and difference and learn about crime committed by individuals, groups, organisations and states and the mechanisms of the criminal justice system including police, courts and corrections.

You’ll engage with research and policy leaders in crime and justice and experience criminal justice in action in a range of international, national and local contexts. The course challenges you to apply abstract knowledge to real-world problems of crime and justice and develop solutions. You’ll be equipped to identify credible evidence, understand measurement and analyse the policy impact, and to develop informed, independent thinking skills.

This course equips students with industry-relevant specialist skills to prepare for working and living in a world of constant technological, environmental, political and population change. These skills include the capacity to critically evaluate evidence, develop and support arguments, conduct research using a variety of methodological approaches, advanced oral and written communication and an understanding of the possibilities and challenges of reform.

The globalising nature of information technology calls out for people with a strong technical background and deep understanding of human society.

As a graduate you will have the technical expertise to shape and manage current and emerging technologies together with the lifelong communication, research and critical thinking skills that are acquired through study in the arts and humanities.
