What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice (Honours) is designed for students who want to hone their knowledge and skills through research.

You'll gain research training at a standard that will prepare you for postgraduate studies in justice administration, criminal justice or criminology. You'll also learn about advanced theoretical concepts and policy debates in contemporary criminology - setting you up to access a career at more than an entry-level position in the criminal justice system.

Your research will help to identify the social issues that lead to crime. You'll also learn to understand what makes criminals tick as well as how to minimise the negative impacts of crime on society.

Industry and expert connections

At Griffith, criminology has always had a strong industry connection and a high level of cooperation from police agencies and other crime related bodies. This Honours degree continues the tradition with a multitude of opportunities to meet with and hear from industry experts.

Graduate outcomes

This degree sets you to enter the criminal justice system in a broader and usually higher range of rewarding roles such as an analyst or program design consultant - careers where the ability to do independent research is key. It also offers you a great pathway into a PhD, a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice (Honours) puts you one step ahead.

Tailor your timetable - Even if you study full-time on-campus, you may still be able to customise your degree to suit your needs. From a range of tutorial times to online access to lectures and other course material, we're here to help you fit study in with your work and life commitments.
