The study of criminology at KPU focuses on the problem of crime and on understanding the social, cultural, political, and economic forces that interact with the law.
The fundamental courses present overviews of legal systems with particular emphasis on criminal and juvenile justice, forms of criminal behaviour, the role of law in understanding social and psychological phenomena, and the applications of sociological theory in understanding law and legal systems.
Additional coursework provides a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of crime, criminal justice policy, socio-legal theory, critical criminology, and restorative justice.
The Diploma in Criminology contains a core of method and theory courses that provides a foundation for a more advanced study of crime and social responses to crime.
Electives reflect the multidisciplinary nature of criminology.
The required courses and electives afford students of criminology an opportunity to develop abstract logical thinking and critical understanding of the issues, arguments, and debates that shape the discipline's character and aims.
