Introduction

This new course is offered to school leavers and those with no previous tertiary qualifications to prepare them for a professional career in the Justice sector. This sector is evolving rapidly to meet the changing environmental, economic, social and cultural demands facing society. This course is also an ideal professional development program for people already employed in the Justice sector who wish to advance their careers and extend their capabilities and opportunities.

The qualification will provide students with a theoretical and practical basis to work as effective change agents across the broad range of justice sector agencies dealing with issues in both government and non-government organisations. Students will develop an understanding of the justice system, its structure, concepts and underlying principles. Students will be introduced to the issues that arise in developing, managing, and administering policy in justice environments and learn the skills necessary to undertake those tasks successfully. Students will undertake a capstone unit in their final year of study by way of a justice studies internship to integrate their learning in the first two years of the degree. Graduates of this course will find employment in a wide range of settings in the justice sector including policy development, court administration, law enforcement, security, corrective services, criminological research, community legal centres and law reform bodies.

Subject to Government approval, Commonwealth Supported Places will be available for this course.
