Program description

Bachelor of Justice Studies

Imagine working for an international organisation like the United Nations, Amnesty International, Australian Human Rights Commission, and Australian Red Cross, within the Police, Department of Justice or Correctional Services. The Bachelor of Justice Studies is your first step towards a career of improving the criminal justice outcomes for offenders and victims, people and places.

  • Specialise in Criminology, Police Studies or Social Justice and Human Rights which reflect social change and demand for job ready graduates who seek to apply their learnings to real world problems.
  • Give yourself every chance to deepen your understanding, gain experience and network through work-integrated learning opportunities, internships and exchange programs in across more than sixty countries.
  • Engage and learn from the world's leading experts in Criminology, Police and Forensic Studies, Sociology and Politics and International Relations, through a unique course which brings together criminal and social justice.

Delivered by the School of Social Sciences, this course is developed within an applied framework that develops your real world problem solving capabilities which can be applied in local, national, and global employment opportunities. Prepare yourself for criminal and social justice workplaces by learning independently and collaboratively about the theoretical, ethical, and practical issues related to crime and justice.

The flexible structure of this degree allows you to tailor course content to suit your own interests. Dive deeper to develop your Justice Studies specialisation, or broaden your learning across other areas of interest with a major (eight units), minor (four units) or individual elective units from across the University of Tasmania.
