The Criminology option is intended to give students a background that permits them to apply to many fields of study at university. The option is ideal for students wanting to explore studies in anthropology, criminology, psychology or sociology. Criminology option students may pursue studies in law; however, this is not intended to be a pre-law program.
Students interested in Criminology might go into careers in corrections, probation, law enforcement, private policing, and law reform or rehabilitation programs – but only after university studies. Students may also pursue possibilities in journalism, administrative and research positions within the criminal justice system, or work in policy setting and application in social and judicial agencies.
