Our criminal justice courses serve to train bright, talented legal minds.

When you study criminal justice with us, you’ll learn the legal, ethical, social, psychological, and cultural issues that underpin the justice system.

At Swinburne, you’ll learn from experienced justice professionals as well as through mock and real-life crime scenarios.

With our criminal justice courses, you’ll learn to evaluate, process, and present evidence in a Moot Court setting, so you’ll have valuable court experience before you’ve graduated.

When you do graduate, you’ll be equipped to work in policing, customs, courts, or government. You’ll understand the framework behind one of our most important institutions — and how it functions in the modern world.
