Our criminal justice and criminology courses give you a strong grounding in the science and psychology of criminal behaviour. You’ll learn how social issues lead to crime and then work with others to create policies that help solve these issues.

When you study criminal justice and criminology you’ll graduate with a full and comprehensive understanding — not just of the criminal justice system but also how to work in victim support, community safety, rehabilitation, crime prevention and corrections programs — and truly make an impact.
