Master of Criminology/ Master of Project Management

Program overview

Advances in technology and our understanding of human behaviour mean that criminology provides sought-after skills and knowledge in a rapidly changing world. 

In professions related to criminology, ‘management by projects’ is becoming the norm. Working on a case-by-case basis, the best results are delivered by interdisciplinary teams headed by leaders who not only have expertise in crime and justice but a suite of skills in people management, time management, design thinking, and high-level communication. This is exactly why a postgraduate qualification in project management is the ideal extension to supercharge your Master of Criminology studies. 

Core to Bond’s combined Master of Criminology and Master of Project Management programs is a strong focus on practical experience and industry application with exposure to designing or evaluating programs, projects, and research. 

Most importantly, having dual criminology and project management qualifications will significantly expand your career options and ensure you stand out upon graduation. 

The Master of Project Management is endorsed by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) and the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) and recognised internationally by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Program code: HD-24033

CRICOS code: 088316G

Hear from our Bondies

  • Project Management (Professional)

    In my last semester of studies, I was fortunate enough to undertake an internship at Find A Site Town Planners. I secured this internship through a networking event on campus held by the Bond University Construction Network Association. Currently, I am a Junior Project Manager/ Real Estate Operations Manager for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Bond helped me prepare for this role and my responsibilities by making me comfortable in taking ‘risks’ and deal with the unknown.
