Ethical Practice in Security Studies and Criminology - PICT320

As the Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) unit for the Department of Security Studies and Criminology, PICT320 partners students with organisations drawn from government, industry, and civil society. Teams of students will work on projects designed both to contribute to the mission of their partner organisation and to give students the opportunity to apply the insights they have developed over the course of their program to a practical problem in their field. Mentors from the partner organisations will provide guidance to the student teams during the unit. Alongside their PACE project work, students will undertake some complementary career development exercises and consider what it means to think and act ethically in their chosen careers.

Applications to undertake PICT320 in Session 2 will open at the start of Session 1 and close at the end of Week 5 in Session 1. The process for enrolling in PICT320 is to submit a request for an on-line application form by emailing

If your application is approved you will be advised to submit an application for Special Approval to finalise your enrolment in the unit. The Special Approval Permission Waiver is the last stage in the process, so you do not need to submit this until advised.
