The Bachelor of Criminal Justice and Criminology is the only degree of its type in Victoria, focussing on both the causes of crime (criminology) and the fallout of crime (criminal justice). You’ll learn about local and global criminality, traditional approaches and responses to crime, and emerging trends and practices.
In this course, you’ll examine the international dimensions of criminal justice as well as the technological advances that impact the sector, including an emphasis on predicting the commission of crime, detecting and stopping criminal behaviour, and implementing effective and efficient criminal sanctions.
The degree will give you the knowledge and skills to work in a range of sectors and industries, including policing, corrections, courts, offender rehabilitation, victim support and government policy development.

I’ve always been fascinated by what causes people to commit crimes and how to prevent them. Swinburne’s course was the most tailored to my interests. We apply theories to real-life cases. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else – interaction and friendships with other students are just as important as the academic side of uni!
