|School:||Wilfrid Laurier University – Brantford Campus|
|Field of Study:||Criminology
|Description:||As a criminology student, you’ll delve into the exciting world of crime, criminals, victims and the law. Criminology isn’t like an episode of CSI; while forensics are part of what you’ll study, your classes will also draw on sociology, psychology and law to examine what defines a crime, why people commit them and how society responds. Criminologists focus on: theories explaining the causes of crime; the social impact and reaction to crime and deviance; victimization; the criminal justice system and law enforcement responses; and crime prevention.
At Laurier, you’ll get a well-rounded education that emphasizes critical thinking, theoretical explanations of behaviour, a foundation in qualitative and quantitative research methods, and communication and writing skills – which just about every employer you meet wants to see.
