The Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice program, offered by Griffith University, provides professional advancement for those working in the fields of criminal justice and criminology. It is designed to provide you with an overview of criminological theory and research, the workings of the criminal justice system and allied organisations, insight into key policy debates and an understanding of research methods.
To be eligible for this course you must have an undergraduate degree.
Open Universities courses are offered in specific study intakes every year, known as Study Periods or Sessions. This means more flexibility as you can choose when to start studying.
If you are studying undergraduate units you can start at the beginning of any of the four Study Periods each year, each lasting 13 weeks. Most postgraduate courses are offered in three Sessions per year, with each Session lasting 14 weeks.
Exams are usually held in the week following the end of each Study Period or Session.
The program gives you a thorough education of social and psychological explanations of crime, as well as contemporary debates in criminological theory. Beyond the core elements of the program in policing, community development, crime prevention, social science research methods, and law and behaviour, you will have the opportunity to study electives from criminal justice, research practice, policing, corrections and crime prevention.
If you choose not to study the entire Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice program you may be able to complete an alternative program. This is beneficial for students who need to develop a specialisation or prefer not to commit to the whole study period.
Depending on the units studied, you can exit with a Graduate Certificate in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
