Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Criminology and Women's and Gender Studies   

The Criminology and Women’s and Gender Studies combined program allows students to train in and learn about the facets of both criminology and women’s and gender studies, with a focus on social justice.

Program Description
Through criminology, students will examine criminal activity, legal issues, policing, regulation, the criminal justice system, and security as major factors in society. In this program you’ll learn how crimes and illegalities are defined, the enforcement and administration of laws, punishments and sanctions, and issues of law, morality and justice. Students will also explore human capital behaviour and the ways in which it influences policy development.     
Through Women’s and Gender Studies, students will assess and appreciate the role of gender and other aspects of human diversity in shaping society, culture, and the lived experience of individuals. Students will also critically evaluate barriers to equality and inclusion in public spaces and identify strategies for the promotion of social justice for all Canadians.
