meet a criminology student

The Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, founded in 1964, offers advanced interdisciplinary study in two closely related, overlapping areas: criminology and sociolegal studies, leading to the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Criminology.

MA graduates find employment in government (in areas such as child and youth services or addiction as well as criminal justice fields), in governmental organizations in the criminal justice field, in social science research, or in other positions for which a background in criminology and legal studies is useful. Some choose to go to law school, and many have gone on to other post-graduate work, such as in criminology, sociology, law, and social work.

PhD graduates have mainly found employment in tenure-track positions, most often in sociology departments or in criminology programs. Both the MA and PhD degree programs are academic rather than professional/vocational.

Students may also be interested in the combined degree program in Law, Juris Doctor / Criminology, Master of Arts (JD/MA).
