La Trobe’s Bachelor of Criminology combines a high-quality criminology education with a commitment to social justice and an emphasis on practical experience. Our Bachelor of Criminology helps you understand the complex causes of crime and develop innovative responses to it.

Workshops you will experience:

  1. Globalisation and Policing: Perspectives from Australia: The world has become increasingly interconnected in an economic, social and political sense. This has significant implications for traditional conceptions of policing. What are some of the most important manifestations of this process in the Australian context? How can we best achieve a critical understanding of the transformations taking place?  In this workshop, we will identify and discuss different examples of how policing is influenced by global transformations, and thus discover some of the most important (and exciting) aspects of policing studies in the ‘globalised era’.
  2. Should that be a crime? What is a crime? What things should be made a crime? What should not be a crime? How do we make something a crime? How should we punish people who commit crimes? Dr Steven Tudor, lecturer in criminal law in the La Trobe Law School, will lead an interactive discussion on these fundamental questions about the nature and purposes of the criminal law.
