The Master of Criminology offers a curriculum that reflects cutting edge theory while providing specialist training for enhanced professional purposes, usually to graduates working in the fields of criminology, the criminal justice system and social policy and research relating to these areas, but may also be taken for general interest. This course does not necessarily lead to higher degree study, however high achieving students may qualify for entry to a masters by research or PhD.
Students will study contemporary global and local problems such as drug use, international crime, transitional justice, white-collar crime and Indigenous politics, with an emphasis both on the latest criminological knowledge and on new law and policy responses to them. They will understand criminal justice as a contested area of social practice, and the ways in which a public criminology can rethink ways of responding to crime.
