Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Criminology and Criminal Justice

Criminology is the study of crime, the consequences of crime, people who engage in crime, and the reasons for that engagement. 

At the same time, Criminal Justice examines the Canadian criminal justice system, including corrections, victimology, police, courts, youth-at-risk, and criminal procedure.

 

 Discovering Criminology and Criminal Justice:

Criminology is a discipline that seeks to understand how people behave in complex, confusing, stressful, tragic, and bizarre situations. 

As the study of Criminology often involves political, social, and personal consideration, students learn to analyze theories of criminal behaviour and fairly and accurately evaluate criminal justice systems and policies.

The university's program at St. Thomas examines the people and institutions that affect, and are affected by, the justice system, exploring the impact on offenders, victims, and the public.

 

Critical and Transferable Skills:

By studying Criminology, students develop exceptional academic and research literacy. 

As a presentation of this research is essential to the discipline, students also gain significant experience in skills such as communication and debate. 

Analytical and evaluative skills are central to the study of Criminology and Criminal Justice. 

Students are required to question the policies and institutions for those identified as criminals and those who have been victims of criminal behaviour.

 

You Might Be Interested in Studying Criminology if...

  • You have ever questioned the workings of the criminal justice system
  • You want a better understanding of the reasons individuals engage in crime
  • You are interested in social justice and want to make a difference
