About

Find out more information about Criminology

Criminology is a multidisciplinary science that studies a diverse set of information related to criminal activities such as individual and group criminal activities, perpetrator psychology and effective means of rehabilitation. Criminology degrees examine social reaction to crime, methods and procedures to prevent and combat crime and social protection from crime. Criminology combines theories from other disciplines like psychology, sociology and law.

Curricula of Masters in Criminology offer students information on juvenile delinquency, cultures of crime, neighbourhood dynamics of crime, deviance and social control, terrorism, forensic science and criminal justice.

Students will acquire relevant knowledge of public policies and the ability to interpret their impact on society. They also develop skills like critical observation and attention to detail, strong analytical and investigative thinking. A criminology expert has a thorough knowledge of research methods and understands causes of criminal behaviour.

Graduates can find jobs in the field as counsellors, drug enforcement officials, investigative agents, probation officers or community development workers.
