New Graduate Certificate of Crime, Risk and Resilience

Graduate Certificate of crime, risk and resilience

RegNet is thrilled to launch our brand new Graduate Certificate of Crime, Risk and Resilience!

This one-of-a-kind, interdisciplinary award is specifically designed to equip current and future practitioners with the knowledge and skills required to develop innovative and holistic governance solutions to increasingly complex criminological threats and challenges.

About the program

The criminological threats and governance challenges confronting police, justice, regulatory and security actors are increasing in our networked world. The significance and complexity of these issues are in-turn exacerbated by the compounding effects of systemic crises, for example Covid-19 pandemic and climate change, which generate significant disruptions and uncertainties. Combatting harmful and illicit activities in the face of disruptions, crises, and poly-crises therefore requires innovative and holistic strategies for conceptualising and addressing crime, risk and resilience and the Graduate Certificate in Crime, Risk & Resilience (CCRR) has been developed with this purpose in mind.

Why Study this program?

Taught by experts based at the world renowned School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), this program is a rich interdisciplinary training experience. Graduates will develop knowledge and skills which will enable them to gain professional recognition as change agents and thought leaders across multiple sectors and domains that are working to prevent and reduce criminal harms in the face of growing complexity.

Career opportunities

This graduate certificate is designed for professionals who are engaged in governing criminal threats, or who are designing, implementing or enforcing regulatory systems within Australia, Asia or the Pacific, as well as those seeking to enter the field of professional regulation.

The program uses case studies, hands-on assessments and recognised examples of regulatory excellence from Australia, Europe, North America and Asia and the Pacific. It has a collaborative learning environment that draws on regulatory scholarship as well as the experience of different regulatory actors and course participants.

The learning experience

The program comprises 24 units: 12 units of compulsory courses covering theory, 3 or 6 units from the ‘Risk & Resilience’ stream, and a minimum of 6 units from the ‘Crime and Governance’ stream.

Core courses provide students with a foundational understanding of the concepts, processes, and practice of regulating in the Crime and Security field.

The ‘Risk and Resilience’ stream courses focus on the complexity of governing in a uncertain world.

The ‘Crime and Governance’ stream includes courses from a broad range of fields such as crime, health, justice, safety, corporations and power, corruption, and compliance and defiance.
