Course Description

Deakin’s Bachelor of Criminology/Bachelor of Psychological Science brings together two independent degrees and combines them in an attractive four-year combined course. This course provides an accredited undergraduate sequence in psychology and includes complementary studies in individual and group counselling, health, and behavioural change.

Combining psychology with criminology provides students with broad theoretical and applied knowledge and skills concerning the meaning of crime; the forms, causes and consequences of crime; and the different institutions and processes involved in preventing and controlling crime. You will be provided with broad theoretical and applied knowledge and skills in relation to policy development, policing and security, and related fields. Topic areas include crime, justice, security and surveillance.

You should consider this degree if you are interested in pursuing a career in psychology or criminology, and particularly the many areas where psychology and criminology overlap.

You will have the opportunity to complete the Criminology Practicum in your final year of study, a unit that brings the professions to the classroom (including online via the ‘cloud’) with practitioner-driven seminars, activities bridging theory and practice, and the development of an e-portfolio that can be used for employment or career development.

In line with Deakin’s commitment to providing flexible study options, you can choose to study the Bachelor of Criminology/Bachelor of Psychological Science full time or part time, at Waurn Ponds (Geelong) campus or via Cloud (online) mode. All subjects provide considerable online activities.

You will also have the opportunity to significantly fast-track your studies using Deakin’s trimester system.
