The Bachelor of Criminology prepares students to respond to the changing nature of crime in the 21st century by addressing the realities of crime in an increasingly digital and transnational age. Ideal for those starting their careers or extending their learning to respond to industry needs, students specialise in either digital forensics & security, data analytics & research, justice & legal studies, or forensics. The course combines studies in these focus areas with practical social science knowledge and skills needed for professions focused on crime prevention, detection, enforcement or the broader social implications and challenges of crime.
The mix of theory and practice in core subjects, in the curated majors and via possible combined degrees with Forensic Science and International Studies addresses industry needs for an applied approach to criminology and the increasingly digital and transnational dimensions of crime.
There is a choice of three majors within the standard Bachelor of Criminology – Forensics, Data Analytics or Justice and Legal Studies.
The Bachelor of Criminology (Analytics and Research) offers students an opportunity to study an extended major focused on crime statistics and data analytics to inform policy and evaluate interventions.
The Bachelor of Criminology (Digital Security) extended major focuses students' studies on Cybersecurity. It is delivered with UTS Information Technology and Science academics.
Curriculum and applied learning from the real world: Students work with data sets, tools, problems and cases used in industry and contributed by UTS partners to be work-ready.
The course is offered primarily on campus, but individual subjects include aspects of asynchronous self-paced learning, synchronous online activities, collaborative learning and activities on campus, and industry engagement via site visits and/or guest speakers.
Pathways: The service of commissioned officers and those who have completed agency training courses is recognised as part of the basis for admission and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for fast-tracking of degree completion.
