What to expect

Bachelor of Business

Our Bachelor of Business degree equips you to confidently enter the modern business world. It combines key business research and contemporary business best practice, and sets demanding standards to create your future career options. You will acquire the specialist skills and knowledge in your choice of business major. Choose from 10 majors to tailor your studies to suit your interests and career aspirations.

Bachelor of Justice

The policy and politics major offers you the opportunity to learn policy analysis and the intricacies of how government officers research, analyse, recommend and develop policies in the justice sphere. It gives you an insight into how policy is implemented and critiqued, and evolves through government and its departments.

The criminology and policing major details punishment and penal policy, crime research methods, and your choice of units in eco crime, sex crime, death investigation, crime in pop culture, drugs and intelligence, among others.
