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. 

Criminal Justice examines the Canadian criminal justice system and includes areas such as corrections, victimology, police, courts, youth-at-risk, and criminal procedure.  

Criminology and Criminal Justice at STU is taught using a liberal arts context, which emphasizes critical thinking and allows for an examination of the legal system’s problems and inequalities while sparking discussion about creative solutions. 

You will study theories about crime and criminal justice, examine new and emerging topics of interest, and be afforded space to apply your knowledge.

What sets STU’s Criminology and Criminal Justice Program Apart? 

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.
  • Professors come from various academic backgrounds—criminology, law, psychology, bioethics, sociology—which brings different perspectives to the study of crime and its policies.
  • For-credit and extracurricular experiential learning opportunities are offered that connect with students’ academic and career ambitions.
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in wrongful convictions, the death penalty, missing and murdered Indigenous women, family violence, family and youth in prison, drug policy, and the portrayal of crime in popular media and film.
