The criminal justice system employs significant numbers of people in policing (State and Federal), courts, customs, security, corrections, various forms of detention (immigration detention, juvenile detention, etc. ), in forensic professions such as forensic psychology and forensic science. Graduates with an understanding of crime and causation and institutional responses to it are also increasingly sought by not-for-profit organizations and government departments. The Bachelor of Laws/Criminology double degree is designed to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on criminology by combining subjects in law and criminology with electives drawn from other disciplines. Graduates will gain broad theoretical and applied knowledge and skills in relation to policy development, policing and security. The course aims to provide career opportunities in the traditional areas of legal practice as well as government agencies, security and intelligence agencies, correctional services, community services, and private security. The three Essentials - Global Citizenship, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Thinking - are specialist areas designed to give you an edge with employers. They will enable you to adapt your knowledge and skills to new contexts in a rapidly changing world. Subjects addressing the Essentials are part of all undergraduate La Trobe degrees and can be identified in the subject database by distinct icons.
