See Future Offerings
The emphasis of this course will be to discuss the contribution that psychology can make to the study of crime. The course will examine psychological theories of crime, as well as traditional and contemporary approaches to controlling crime. An important aspect of the course will be to expose students to relevant and applied research being conducted by ANU researchers and to the first-hand experience of practitioners.
Topics covered include: forensic psychology, criminal profiling, arson, sexual assault, terrorism, cognition and crime, and child victimization.
To be arranged in consultation with students, but previously assessment consisted of two online quizzes (each worth 10% of the final grade), an essay (40%) and an examination (40%).
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Two hours of lectures per week and 18 hours of laboratories spread across the semester.
