This double degree will give you insights into crime and the criminal justice system. In the psychological science component, you will develop an understanding of human behaviour and the variables that affect it, which will help you understand how people can get caught up in the criminal justice system. In the criminology and criminal justice component, you will study crime trends and learn how crime can be analysed and prevented.
You will have the option to complete a professional practice placement one day a week in your final year to gain experience in a justice-related workplace.
The criminology and criminal justice component of the program will be offered on-campus and off-campus. The psychological science component of the program will be offered on-campus only.
Work-integrated learning activities integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in the degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life. In this program you will spend 100 hours in an organisational context completing a project for that organization through a field placement. In semester two of your final year you can undertake this unpaid placement which will require one day a week attendance within an organization. Preparation for this course occurs during semester one.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each semester. This may affect your entitlement to Centrelink benefits. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program are 30 credit points.
You will find work in probation and parole, community corrections, guidance, health management, family services, counselling, child protection, program and policy development, research and administration.
As a graduate, you may undertake a further year of study (honours or postgraduate) in psychology which will make you eligible for associate membership of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and general registration, with probationary conditions, as a psychologist in Queensland.
