The criminal justice system is becoming increasingly complex and the systems related to criminal justice are expanding to include more community, government and non-government organisations than ever before. The increase in the breadth of organisations working in a criminal justice context has highlighted the importance of management skills for people considering a management career in criminal justice.

Our graduates are job-ready through a work integrated learning program undertaken in the third year of the degree. Students experience criminal justice in the real-world with a placement that responds to real world issues.

A career in criminal justice is incredibly rewarding and there are a diverse range of careers available. Whether you’re working with people directly in the system or in a management role where you are managing a small team or project, you can play a role in influencing positive changes for individuals and the community.
