  • Objectives
    This program will provide a general introduction to the broad range of issues discussed within criminological theories. Students will be provided with both knowledge and research skills and techniques required for analysis of criminological issues and an understanding of how to critically evaluate public research.

    Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.

    Professional Outcomes

    Graduates of this program could find opportunities in the areas of research, teaching, intelligence analysis, program development, service delivery and consulting. They could expect to be employed in areas such as state and federal agencies, law enforcement or crime research, specially convened tribunals, police, community welfare and so on.  Students with a background in areas such as journalism, psychology, public relations and international relations could also benefit from completing studies in this area.

    Combined Degrees

    Students can combine this degree with any other undergraduate degree at Bond (except Medicine) to suit their professional and personal interests. Bond's three-semester academic year allows students to complete two degrees in the same time it would take to complete just one degree at other universities (dependant upon degree combination).
