Program Information

School:University of Alberta
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Criminology
Description:Criminology focuses on causes of criminal behaviour, labeling of behaviours as criminal, changing definitions of deviance and crime, the ways we count and measure crime, and social responses to it including the operation of the institutions that make up the criminal justice system. Students complete two field placements involving supervised work experience in a relevant criminal justice setting. The placements stress practical applications of criminological theory and complement the academic component of the Criminology program. Students are exposed to new people, information and gain valuable first-hand experience within the criminal justice system.

The University of Alberta offers a BA in Criminology, which is the study of crime and social responses to crime. In this degree program, you will engage with excellent instructors and leading scholars in their fields through lectures, seminars, and one-on-one mentorship. You will develop a body of knowledge about behaviors, processes, and institutions related to crime, as well as skills in research methods and social theory. Our program provides the opportunity to apply and extend your knowledge through field placements, faculty research mentorships, and further experiential learning.
