About Master of Criminology at KU Leuven

The Master of Criminology is designed to provide students with an advanced understanding of crime, public response to crime and, specifically, criminal justice in Europe and beyond.

What is the programme all about?

The programme is characterised by a strong link between education and research, an explicitly international orientation and comparative methodology, with special attention given to the cross-border character of criminality.

General subjects include criminological theories and models of law enforcement, psychology, law and criminal justice, youth criminology and juvenile justice, and research methods. The programme also offers cutting-edge courses on international police and judicial cooperation, political crimes and transitional justice, restorative justice, terrorism, and organised and corporate crime. You can also apply for a programme in cooperation with Maastricht University.

LINC is the most recent institutional incarnation (2007) of the criminological tradition in Leuven, which began with the establishment of the School for Criminology in 1929. Excellence in criminology continues in the present day, combining solid research with a deep commitment to a society structured within ten research lines. LINC is composed of 11 professors and more than 70 assistants and fellows involved in criminological research and education.
