Study justice

If you want a career that can make a positive difference, our justice courses prepare 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, the government and private sector, 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.

Learn from the best

Our staff are highly qualified experts with extensive industry knowledge and connections across multiple industries and in subjects areas such as policy, governance, criminology and intelligence.

We frequently welcome guest lecturers in many of our units. For example, first-year students taking Forensic Psychology and the Law received lectures from consultants working for the Family Court of Australia, psychologists from the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health, and academics specialising in human memory and eyewitness testimony in court.

In 2017, we welcomed visiting police associate Inspector Christopher Emzin to deliver guest lectures, mentor students and assist with research.

Industry relevance

Our Graduate Certificate in Policy and Governance has been designed in consultation with the Queensland Public Service Commission (QPSC), while the Graduate Certificate in Domestic Violence was developed after extensive industry consultation with front-line workers, non-profit and support service employees and police.

Flexible study

Learning materials for our bachelor course and graduate certificates are available online.

Access specialised resources

Our QUT Law Library provides an extensive range of specialised legal resources and learning support for students. You'll also have on-site access to expert staff and online access to a reservoir of online databases and journals.
