What will I learn?

FUEL YOUR PASSION FOR HELPING PEOPLE

Understanding human behaviour and what makes people tick is a crucial skill in the world of criminology and justice. With this double degree, you'll be prepared for a range of crime-related career opportunities with a focus on the psychological side of criminology. You'll also learn about the trends in crime control, along with new tactics and techniques for solving crime.

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 double degree continues the tradition with a multitude of opportunities to meet with and hear from industry experts. In your final year, you'll have the option to complete a professional practice placement one day a week in a justice-related workplace.

Graduate outcomes

Combining criminology with psychological science will give you the skills and understanding needed to deal with the human behaviour of crime. You'll find work in probation and parole, community corrections, family services, counselling, child protection, program and policy development, research and administration. There are also opportunities for crime trend analysis and the role of psychology in crime prevention.
