York’s Criminology degree aims to provide graduates with a broad foundation of theoretical knowledge, analytical and research skills, as well as a full understanding of the workings of the criminal justice system. As a critical, interdisciplinary liberal arts program, Criminology equips students with analytic and research skills that are valued by both public and private sector employers in a variety of fields including, but not limited to, criminal justice. Criminology graduates have gone on to careers in law enforcement, probation and the courts, conflict mediation, border control, immigration, law, journalism, human rights advocacy, social services and public policy (see our resource page here for some helpful links).
Our new program provides you with an exceptional opportunity to pursue study in an evolving and expanding field of knowledge. You will explore the ways in which concepts of crime, criminality and criminal justice have developed over time. You will investigate how crime has been and is understood legally, politically, economically and culturally.
