Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology)/Bachelor of Justice
Queensland University of Technology - Kelvin Grove

Course outline

This double degree integrates two highly sought-after areas. You will learn how to understand human behaviours and apply your skills in challenging situations. You can combine justice, criminology, policing, policy, politics and psychology in one package, and explore topics including crimes of violence, cyber crime, official corruption, youth justice, crime prevention, intelligence and security, drugs and crime, domestic violence, sex and crime, organised crime, terrorism and death investigation. In the justice component, you can choose a major in either policy and politics or criminology and policing. In the psychology degree, you can take the first step towards a career as a registered psychologist. The two degrees have many related study areas such as addictive behaviours, forensic psychology and traffic psychology.

In the justice degree, choose from two majors—policy and politics or criminology and policing. The policy and politics major offers you the opportunity to learn policy analysis and the intricacies of how government officers research, analyse, recommend and develop policies in the justice sphere. Particularly, it gives you an insight into how policy is implemented and critiqued, and evolves through government and its departments.

The criminology and policing major details punishment and penal policy as well as crime research methods with your choice of units in eco crime, sex crime, death investigation, crime in pop culture, drugs and intelligence, among others.
