Crime and the social conditions which drive or suppress criminal behaviour vary from place to place. Criminology at the Scene is designed to break down the artificial barriers of understanding crime in different contexts which can incubate in a purely classroom setting. Criminology at the Scene takes advantage of existing linkages the Australian National University has with national and global institutions to provide a unique experience in applied criminology.
Criminology at the Scene offers students the opportunity to undertake fieldwork during the Winter Session, and engage directly with academics and practitioners operating in a distinctly different environments (e.g. urban, rural, the US, China).
Students should note they are responsible for their personal travel and associated costs.
Contact the course convener for details of the next field school.
