About Program

Criminology involves the study of crime, criminal behaviour and responses to law-breaking. The principle elements of criminology are social science theory, institutional and systems impacts, and research methods that explore all aspects of crime, criminal behaviour and justice issues. The individual and social impact of crime will be a critical component of your research.

Your two-year Criminology diploma is the first step toward criminal justice related employment and/or further studies in criminology. The diploma program consists of 60 credits of university transferable coursework, completed on a full-time basis over two years (four academic semesters). Options for part-time study are also available.

Core 100-level courses include introductory topics in statistics, psychology, sociology, criminology, the criminal justice system and Canadian law and politics, giving you a well-rounded knowledge base. A variety of 200-level topics allow you to advance in your field of work, developing expertise in areas of criminal and deviant behaviour, criminal law, policing, corrections and more.

In addition, you are able to choose four elective courses among a host of university transfer subjects including anthropology, biology, business, chemistry, criminology, economics, English, equity and social justice, fine arts, First Nations studies, French, geography, history, mathematics, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, sociology, Spanish and women’s studies.

The diploma also provides an excellent foundation if you wish to pursue university studies in law. Students interested in transferring are encouraged to speak to an NIC educational advisor and the receiving institution advisor as well.
