Study justice

If you want a career that can make a positive difference, our justice degree prepares you for a career in policing, intelligence, the justice profession, policy or government.

Why study justice at QUT?

  • Study for a career in policy, governance, law enforcement, military services, government and private sector intelligence and security agencies, crime prevention agencies, and criminal and social justice policy agencies.
  • Choose to study full-time or part-time, on campus or online, or choose a combination of delivery options for flexible study.
  • Combine your studies in criminology, policing, policy and governance with law or psychology, forensic science, management or Indigenous knowledges.

Connect with industry

Our justice courses are updated regularly to match industry needs.

We help our students make industry connections through industry placements and our career mentor scheme. Our students have:

  • worked with corrections departments in the Northern Territory
  • completed a project in the Office of the State Coroner
  • gained experience in the Office of the Information Commissioner.

Many placements are funded to cover flights and other expenses.
