Content of your postgraduate study

The Master in Criminology combines many different disciplines. Using theories, tools, and explanatory approaches from the field of sociology, criminal law, the legal system, and victimology, you will adopt a full understanding for criminology.

Criminology itself attempts to explain, detect, prevent, and control criminal behaviour. Within your study, you will look into the origin of criminals: What families do they stem from? Have they experienced any crime or offence during early childhood? How is their integration within a given community? What is the psychology behind severe crimes? Each of these questions focus on the criminal offender by utilising sociology, health and psychology.

Two other topics within Criminology are victimology and crime prevention. The former describes which victims criminals choose and why. The latter includes how crimes can be prevented. In order to establish effective crime prevention measures, the victimology needs to be clear. Inform yourself about what particular Masters in Criminology is offered at which university.
