            Criminal Justice looks at the criminal justice process and the treatment of offenders and victims. It is a multi-disciplinary field of study which seeks to draw together elements of many areas, including:

            • policing
            • developmental and abnormal psychology
            • criminal law and procedure
            • sentencing and the treatment of convicted offenders.

            Criminology, which forms a subset of topics within Criminal Justice, primarily focuses on the theory and sociology of crime and is often less concerned with practical issues. The Bachelor of Criminal Justice (BCJ), however, builds on academic theories of crime, its causes, and the research that underpins those theories, before going on to assess the criminal justice process itself; the law, policies, and institutions that make up this system.
