This area of study presents the application of criminal justice in a unique mixture of regional, urban and international crime-related contexts. Studies specialise in contemporary regional and international crime matters, crime prevention, policing in its generic sense, criminal behaviours and profiles, and alternative justice and corrections initiatives. A special feature is the opportunity for students of criminal justice to develop links with regional practitioners and, in some cases, utilise placements within the criminal justice and allied systems.
