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.
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.
To be eligible for this course you must have an undergraduate degree.
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.
Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a nationally recognised, accredited Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University.
As a graduate from the Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice program your career opportunities in criminal justice-related fields include crime prevention, community development, security, policing, corrections, family services, law, justice administration and policy, customs, mental and community health, local government, military services, and criminal justice research organisations.
