Bachelor of Psychological Science/Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice

Students studying the Bachelor of Psychological Science/Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice will explore how individuals behave, think and feel, and come to understand the complex causes and impact of crime. The criminology and criminal justice degree includes studies in forensic science, cybercrime, border protection and biosecurity, understanding violence and trauma and the legal and social policies that keep us safe. The psychology degree helps students to acquire knowledge, assimilate theories and concepts and develop applicable skills that are valuable to the enhancement of human functioning in a broad range of professional settings. By combining these degrees, graduates will gain wider insights than can be developed in a three-year single degree. Psychological studies will assist those who seek a career in the justice sector. Similarly, those with aspirations of becoming a forensic psychologist will be assisted with the knowledge gained from the criminology studies.

This course is currently accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).
