For more information about Criminology at University of Alberta, please visit the webpage using the button above.
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.
