Criminology is a social science that combines multiple disciplines such as sociology, psychology, law, and criminal justice in order to examine the causes of crime and manage crime.
With popular TV and netflix crime series, Criminology is becoming a popular discipline to study.
Following the course in criminology you will gain a strong foundation of knowledge through interdisciplinary coursework that focuses on topics such as criminal behaviour, social violence, crime analysis, leadership, and decision making. You will learn qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research methods to investigate crimes, explore the behavioural aspects behind deviant behaviours, identify criminal and victim characteristics. You will apply critical thinking in responses to technological, human, legal, and management perspectives.
Criminology programs are designed for students wishing to pursue careers in the criminal justice field, such as police officers, federal officers, probation officers, civil service administrator, community development workers, crime scene investigators, detectives, social or youth workers, but also to find employment outside the criminal justice sector pursuing careers in colleges and universities, legislative bodies or public policy areas to become a social researcher, political risk analyst, local government officer, counselor or border force officer, to name a few.
