Forensic behavioural science is an emerging field of discourse at the interface of human services and criminal justice systems, which draws on a range of disciplines including psychology, psychiatry, nursing, criminology, law, social work and ethics.

The graduate program in forensic behavioural science has been developed to enhance the knowledge and skills of a broad range of professionals working with people displaying antisocial and criminal behaviour. The program addresses both assessment and management issues. It assists professionals to incorporate 'best practice' principles into their daily work practices.
