Criminology at the ANU is multidisciplinary. We have a world class reputation for high quality research in crime and justice. Undergraduate students can study criminology as part of our flagship Bachelor of Criminology program, or as a Major or Minor within the Bachelor of Arts. We also offer an Honours degree in Criminology and we supervise PHD students on Criminological topics.
We bring together experts from across the university in sociology, psychology, law, political science, demography, social policy, computer science and economics.
Our aim is to engage nationally and internationally on the frontiers of crime and justice by focusing on key issues that shape modern crime and justice policy. We push boundaries in how we conceptualise, understand, and evaluate crime to improve outcomes for ordinary citizens.
We offer opportunities for faculty to collaborate with our international partners at UCL Department of Security and Crime Science (University College London), Nanjing University (China), Indiana University (Bloomington, USA) and NTU (Singapore).
