About this course

Gain a critical understanding of criminal justice through multidisciplinary learning delivered by some of Australia’s leading criminologists.

Designed for anyone with an interest in criminal justice, the Master of Criminology addresses contemporary questions about crime and social control in policy, theory and practice. You will scrutinise crime and criminal justice in modern Australia and compare it with a wide range of local and global community concerns.

Our face-to-face classes are led by Australia’s experts in criminal law, criminal justice policy, juvenile and restorative justice, forensic psychology, crime and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues, international and comparative criminal justice and policing. This course recognises the importance of research, policy and applied learning.

We will equip you for work with public and private criminal justice and social welfare agencies with a focus on psychology and psychiatry, public policy, social research and legal practice.

We welcome practitioners and students from a broad range of backgrounds including social policy, research, advocacy, psychology, public health, history, media, policing, corrections, law, socio-legal studies and criminology.
