Graduate Certificate in Criminology

What can you do with your degree?

Criminology is fast becoming a vital discipline.  A career in criminology explores the motives behind criminal behaviour and analyses the criminal justice system.

The Graduate Certificate in Criminology enables students with an existing knowledge or in an early career in criminology to develop research skills as they relate to various areas of criminological enquiry and communicate the results of any research findings to both technical and non-technical audiences. It will equip graduates with the critical thinking skills and strategic development required to expand their criminology careers.
