Honours subject area

About this honours subject area

The one year Criminology Honours program is designed to provide students with the training and skills to complete a substantial piece of self-directed criminology research. The program consists of two advanced level seminar courses and the preparation of an honours thesis based on original research on a topic of the student’s choice. The Criminology honours thesis is an independent research project that is planned and completed under the supervision and guidance of a member of the Discipline. Criminology Honours offers high achieving students the opportunity to develop superior research, writing and communication skills, which prepares graduates for careers in research, policy and related areas. It also provides a pathway into postgraduate study. This subject area is available to students who have previously completed a major in Criminology.
