No special requirements
Please note: Students who have started the Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice before 2017 do not have to do this subject as a core, but can do the subject as one of their electives.
This subject is designed to enable students to relate what they have already learned about key concepts underlying the criminology and criminal justice systems to the kinds of careers available to them upon graduation. Participation in this degree will require that students develop a broad understanding of the kinds of jobs available in the range of workplaces employing criminology and criminal justice graduates and of the knowledge and skills they demand. It will also mean that students will need to develop and articulate awareness of their own strengths and of the kinds of contributions they are best equipped to make. This degree focuses on career development, linking theory and practice and reflective thinking skills. It is therefore relevant for all students, including those with extensive work experience.
