Criminology explores the causes and effects of crime, as well as criminal thought processes and the public’s reaction to criminal behaviour. It is the study of crime and criminal behaviour. This involves the study of criminal behaviour, policing, and transnational and international crimes. You will gain an understanding of how countries respond to crimes through the criminal justice system.

Solving crimes requires proficiency in a diverse set of skills across several fields. Hence, scientific approaches to research are undertaken in criminology through a multi-disciplinary approach.

By studying Criminology, you will learn about the social and psychological factors that drive criminals behaviour, as well as understand the criminal justice system in order to anticipate crime and apprehend its perpetrators.
