Criminal justice

Criminal justice draws on diverse areas including psychological studies, sociology and Indigenous studies to stimulate fresh thinking. They examine why crime occurs, why it varies in nature and rate, and how to evaluate the effectiveness of crime prevention policies. Graduates of these majors have the ability to evaluate the criminal justice process and consider new and radical alternatives for dealing with crime – skills which employers like the police, courts, government departments and law commissions regard highly.
