The CRIM Experience

The CRIM Experience is a one-hour, hands on activity designed for high school students. Participants will benefit from this activity by:

  • Learning how criminology and criminal justice studies contribute to our understanding of why people commit crimes, how the criminal justice system works and ways to control and prevent crime harms;
  • Gaining an understanding of how criminals make bad decisions;
  • Learning about negative affects of alcohol and drugs abuse;
  • Gaining an insight into post-tertiary career options in criminology at UQ.

To celebrate the commencement of the Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice (Honours) program in 2017, the School is offering "The CRIM Experience" for free in 2017 for Year 11 and 12 students. The ideal group size is 20-25 (multiple sessions can be run for larger numbers).
