Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in History and Criminology

The History and Criminology combined program is offered jointly by the Department of History and the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology, offering students with the opportunity to explore topics in both areas.

Program Description
As a history student, you will develop sharpened critical thinking and writing skills, while learning about the study of history itself and how it has changed over time. You can choose from a diverse array of course offerings from North American, European, Latin American, Middle Eastern and African history, as well as women’s history, Aboriginal history, African-American/Canadian, Atlantic World, the Renaissance, military history, history on film, and popular culture, among others.
As well, our criminology program has the distinct virtue of being situated in an interdisciplinary department and, thus, uniquely provides students with both breadth and depth of knowledge. It has produced many distinguished graduates.
Criminology systematically examines criminal activity, legal issues, policing, regulation, the criminal justice system, and security as major factors in society. It focuses on the causes, consequences, and control of crimes, illegalities and wrongdoings, criminal law, policing, prosecution, sentencing, punishment, and deviance.
