The Brantford Campus has developed a broad, comprehensive Honours BA Criminology program, which will suit students who wish to use criminology as a basis for a variety of different career paths.

The Honours Criminology BA program is only available at the Brantford Campus.

The Honours Bachelor of Arts Criminology Combination degree is open to all undergraduate students enrolled in another BA program at any campus. It is also available online for non-Brantford campus students.

Students completing the online Criminology combined major are excluded from the Policing combination major. Students who wish to combine these online programs must enrol in the fully online part-time Honours Bachelor of Arts Criminology and Policing program.

The criminology minor is available at the Brantford and Waterloo Campuses.

The certificate and diploma in criminology provides academic training to professionals and mature students working in the field of criminal justice, thus allowing them to improve their effectiveness on the job. The curriculum is not designed to satisfy specific employment credentials, but encourages those engaged in the administration of justice to critically evaluate and consider the increasingly complex challenges of our criminal justice system. The required courses and electives afford students with an opportunity to develop skills in logical thinking and critical analysis. These programs encourage professional development for individuals with at least one year of related formal work experience.
