Criminology

The Honours Criminology BA program is only available at the Brantford Campus. The criminology minor is available at the Brantford and Waterloo Campuses.

The Brantford Campus has developed a broad, comprehensive Honours BA Criminology program, which will suit students who wish to use criminology as a basis for a variety of different career paths.

The certificate and diploma in criminology provides academic training to professionals and mature students working in the field of criminal justice, thus allowing them to improve their effectiveness on the job. The curriculum is not designed to satisfy specific employment credentials, but encourages those engaged in the administration of justice to critically evaluate and consider the increasingly complex challenges of our criminal justice system. The required courses and electives afford students with an opportunity to develop skills in logical thinking and critical analysis. These programs encourage professional development for individuals with at least one year of related formal work experience.
