Units in the undergraduate criminology program cover a variety of topics:
Criminology units feature contemporary examples and case studies from across Australia, as well as internationally prominent or innovative examples from around the world. Lectures and tutorials encourage students to develop critical thinking skills and professional competencies so that they can confidently apply concepts and theories to real-world issues in practice.
You can study criminology straight after completion of your TCE or you can enter as a mature-aged student. One-third of our first-year criminology students are mature-aged (over 21 years old).
Criminology is taught on the Launceston and Hobart campuses. Some units are also offered via distance education.
Criminology is an interdisciplinary major (or minor) that is primarily studied as part of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Social Science degree, and also complements the study of other disciplines such as law and psychology. Students in these disciplines should check the rules of their degree and consult with their home Faculty as restrictions may apply.
