Course Description

Deakin’s Bachelor of Criminology provides a comprehensive course of study in this growing academic field. Deakin has one of the few dedicated criminology courses in Australia, allowing us to offer a wide variety of criminology topics. The degree provides a solid educational foundation in the principles of criminological thoughts and research that will enable graduates to choose between seeking employment in related industries and seeking to undertake further study. Deakin’s criminology program involves broad fields of study with students covering a considerable breadth and depth of crime and criminal justice issues, as well as specialisation in areas such as victimology, media, terrorism, crime prevention, security and surveillance.

The course aims to produce graduates with the ability to engage in debates concerning crime and justice issues, matters that are part of everyday life, and practical knowledge and skills in an engaging field of study with diverse career prospects.
