What will you do?
The Criminology program from University of Adelaide prepares you to think critically about crime and the criminal justice sector, as you:
- examine criminal and anti-social behaviour
- debate the causes and consequences of crime
- investigate policing and crime prevention techniques
- question justice and corrections systems
- learn how to conduct research on emerging threats, such as cybercrime, organised crime, and terrorism.
Where could it take you?
Criminology graduates are empowered to pursue a wide range of different employment opportunities. You may choose to work in an operational role in the criminal justice system, or within one of the critical external organisations supporting the sector. You may follow a path into other professional settings, such as policy-making, research, analysis or education. You could combine your degree in criminology with other degrees, majors or minors, to pursue a career in law, forensics or psychology, amongst others.
Our graduates will go on to a wide range of rewarding careers. Many find employment amongst the various operational professions that make up the criminal justice system, such as in policing, security, intelligence, corrections and court administration.
Elsewhere, graduates choose employment across the vast array of other hands-on and critical welfare and support roles that enhance outcomes for victims, offenders and the community at large. Other graduates take on policy-making, research, education or entrepreneurial roles for a diverse cast of employers including Commonwealth, state or local government agencies, universities, schools and various other training or service providers.
The University of Adelaide Careers Service prepares, inspires and empowers students to achieve successful career transitions and connect with industry.
