What will I learn?
This double degree will give you insights into crime and the criminal justice system. In the psychological science component, you will develop an understanding of human behaviour and the variables that affect it, which will help you understand how people can get caught up in the criminal justice system. In the criminology and criminal justice component, you will study crime trends and learn how crime can be analysed and prevented.
You will have the option to complete a professional practice placement one day a week in your final year to gain experience in a justice-related workplace.
My career opportunities
You will find work in probation and parole, community corrections, guidance, health management, family services, counselling, child protection, program and policy development, research and administration.
