Overview

The Bachelor of Criminology (Honours) [BCCJ (Hons)] is a 48 UOC (one year equivalent) advanced undergraduate degree for high achieving students which may be taken upon completion of an undergraduate pass degree in Criminology & Criminal Justice. The BCCJ (Hons) can be completed full-time or part-time.

The Honours Program in Criminology is designed to provide students with appropriate training and guidance for the completion of a major piece of criminological research. Graduates of the Program should be able to demonstrate their ability as autonomous researchers and are well-prepared for a research and/or policy career in criminology in a variety of organisational settings. Some may proceed to a PhD or other research degrees. The program requires completion of fourth year seminars, and a substantial research project based on original research on a topic approved by the School.

On successful completion of the Bachelor of Criminology (Honours), students will have the ability to:

  • apply a highly developed understanding of the theoretical concepts and body of knowledge in Criminology to address a research topic;
  • reflect critically on existing knowledge, ideas and practice within Criminology to address a research topic;
  • plan and execute an independent piece of research into an issue relevant to contemporary Criminology; and
  • communicate research ideas effectively in oral presentations and in writing.
