About Criminology

We can’t avoid the hard-hitting truth that crime affects everyone. The Australian Institute of Criminology estimates that it costs Australia nearly $36 billion a year – that’s 4.1 per cent of our gross domestic product. Even if we’re not direct victims, the impact on our daily lives and freedoms is pervasive.

If you have a strong sense of social justice and are looking for a job with meaning, then criminology may be a good direction for you. Forensics is a popular and ever-developing field, but the wider discipline of criminology also goes far beyond evidence-gathering and interpretation to include roles across the police and corrective and criminal justice services.

The discipline can be at once as complex as human nature and as relevant as addressing society’s most pressing needs. For example, you might be able to help address the growth in fraud, which costs us $8.5 billion a year and has increased significantly in recent years.
