Why study Criminology?

Criminology is an interdisciplinary field in the social and behavioural sciences, drawing on the areas of sociology, psychology and psychiatry, anthropology and law. The criminology major at UQ is distinguished by its theoretical and methodological focus on crime and public policy. The major is strongly underpinned by sociological theories, and students undertaking this major become highly trained in social research methods and critical thinking, and learn to examine crime and its regulation within the context of social, economic and political shifts in contemporary society. The major is strongly cross-disciplinary and enables students to combine criminology with other fields of study such as sociology, political science, law, psychology, history and philosophy.
