At Griffith, criminology is a multidisciplinary field of study, drawing upon psychology, sociology, law, social work, criminology and criminal justice, history, and political science.
Our undergraduate criminology and criminal justice degree is the only one in Queensland backed by 'well above world-standard' research. That knowledge feeds into the most up-to-date study content, giving you the best skills for an employment edge.
