Description

This course provides students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in other parts of the Master of Criminal Justice in a professional environment. Placements in areas such as police, corrections and justice as well as non-governmental organisations with an emphasis on criminal justice issues or advocacy will not only give students workplace experience relevant to their degree, but will introduce them to professional ethics, standards and conduct in the criminal justice sphere. Combined with an academic component, which will be relevant to the placement, the internship is intended to help facilitate students' transformation from university students to criminal justice professionals able to reflect critically on both their own performance and organisational culture.

Pre-requisites

Subject to the approval of the Head of Department of Law.
