What will I learn?
An honours degree identifies you as a future innovator and leader in your field. The Bachelor of Justice (Honours) develops your applied research skills to an advanced level in the fields of critical criminology, investigations and policing, and justice policy. The course provides you with the opportunity to use and develop your research skills, broaden your knowledge of a specific professional field, and extend your knowledge of the theories of justice.
You will undertake units in advanced research management, seminal texts in criminology and honours research methods before completing your substantial research project with the support of an academic supervisor. Your project will culminate in a thesis and gives you the opportunity to pursue original lines of thought, formulate and test hypotheses, develop problem solving strategies, make decisions and demonstrate high ethical standards, pursue awareness of sociocultural and equity issues, and develop professional accountability. An honour provides you with advanced analytical skills, leading to opportunities for higher degree studies and giving you an edge in your professional life.
