Overview

Fraud. Corruption. Terrorism. Domestic violence. Cybercrime. Vandalism. Car theft. Gun crime. Assault. Understanding who commits these types of crimes, their motivations for doing so, how society responds to such crime, and how the impact of crime can be alleviated are all the pursuit of criminologists.

As a graduate from the Criminology program at Macquarie University, you’ll use your knowledge and draw from fields including sociology, psychology, psychiatry and social anthropology, to understand better, measure and evaluate crime.
