Prison tour puts theory in to practice for Criminology & Justice students

Monday, 16 November 2020


Each year the Course Coordinator of Criminology writes to the Department of Justice (DoJ) to request permission for Phil Moses (a sessional lecturer who is employed by the Department of Justice) to organise a tour of the prisons for our students.  This practical learning experience consolidates what they have learned in one of our core units CRI2103 Correctional Studies: Theory and Practice.

Whilst it is not compulsory to attend, most students do and take time on their weekends (or in the mid semester break, depending on when we can organise it) to attend one or more of the prisons on offer.  This is an opportunity for students to actually see how the theoretical concepts underpin how the prisons operate.

It is a unique experience for ECU Criminology studies and another great example of how closely linked to industry the Criminology Courses are.
