Dr Anna Macklin, Dr Julianne Webster and Dr Kenneth Wooden graduated with almost 200 criminology undergraduate and postgraduate students at the Brisbane Convention Centre, South bank.

“It has been a very busy, yet vibrant, year in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and we take great pleasure in celebrating the successes of our undergraduate and graduate students,” said Deputy Head of School Dr Kate Smith.

“We wish those who have graduated every success in their future careers.”
