World of opportunity in exciting new courses

A new double degree in Cybersecurity and Criminology will equip students to succeed in a growing industry.

Flinders University’s reputation for excellent teaching and research and investment in exceptional student experience has seen it remain a popular choice for prospective students in 2018.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students) Professor Clare Pollock says Flinders is offering a range of new courses in areas with strong jobs potential and the ability to make a positive difference in society.

These include a new double degree in Cybersecurity and Criminology, a Forensic Science/Criminology combination, and a new Criminology (Honours) course available by direct entry, while among our new Archaeology offerings students have the option of a degree which adds in forensic and analytical science.

A new suite of combinations in sports, nutrition and health – including a new Health Promotion/Innovation and Enterprise double degree – responds to increased demand for courses that help people to enjoy healthier longer lives.
