ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
With the rise of popular television shows such as CSI, Criminal Minds and Law & Order, more people are developing an interest for careers in criminology.
Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behaviour. You will gain an understanding of criminal law and how a country responds to crimes through the criminal justice system.
This involves the study of policing, criminal behaviour, and transnational and international crimes. You will study cause and prevention of crimes from a multidisciplinary approach.
The study of criminology will help you understand why people commit crimes, how to prevent them, and how we can improve the criminal justice system.
Students with Murdoch University-recognised Kaplan Diplomas or relevant Private Diplomas or Polytechnic Diplomas will be given up to 8-module exemptions and gain entry to Year 2 of the programme. As students can gain entry direct to Year 2 of the programme, they can complete the programme in 20 months instead of 28 months.
Students will attend a combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops in this programme. Students have the flexibility to plan their study schedule based on their own study load.
