The course is designed for practitioners already employed or active in the field of criminal justice/corrections, and for students who wish to gain further professional knowledge and credentials in the field of criminology. The course will develop high-level critical thinking and applied skills for people researching and working in the criminal justice field.

The core Units - Criminological Theory & Practice, and Correctional Theory & Practice - lay the conceptual foundations for understanding and interpreting recent developments in criminology and criminal justice. These units provide a survey of contemporary theories, principles and practices within the field, with examples drawn from Tasmania, from Australia and internationally.

Other units provide practitioner-relevant information and skill development across a variety of specialist areas. The units are designed to enhance the knowledge and applied practices of students in each area.

The Practicum (in the Diploma) is designed to develop and bolster basic research and evaluation skills, through both the medium of seminar-based teaching-learning and hands-on experience in working at the agency and/or project level. It is expected that students will become knowledgeable about a range of methodologies and procedures, including ethics protocols, and that they will gain experience in translating these into practice by spending time in the field on designated projects. This will involve university-provided supervision as well as agency cooperation.

These course rules and specifications apply to students commencing thecourse in 2010 For students who commenced prior to 2010, the applicable course rules are those from the year of commencement. i.e. students who commenced in 2006 should refer to the 2006 Handbook.
