Selected major: Criminology
In this criminology major you’ll focus on why crimes are committed, how society defines crime and treats criminals, and what social factors and motivations can lead to criminal behaviour. Examine the systems and practices within policing as well as global crime problems, cyber-crime and security issues, and learn how to analyse trends, formulate policies and create systems to help prevent crime.
