Program Overview

The major in criminology, administered by the Department of Sociology, aims to promote the academic study of different facets of criminal justice organizations and practices, including the legal, political and social contexts in which they operate. This program would be beneficial for students with a scholarly interest in deviant/criminal behaviour, social justice and legal issues, policing, corrections, law enforcement, rehabilitation, and criminal justice themes more broadly, including those who have completed the diploma in police studies; experienced police officers; and others working in a policing, correctional, or criminal justice environment. The major in criminology does not constitute a qualification in policing or corrections.

Criminology at Memorial
The criminology major promotes critical thinking about the legal, political, and social influences that impact crime and society, and our criminal justice system. This program would be beneficial if you have a scholarly interest in policing, the courts, corrections, or another facet of the justice system. Our faculty work closely with our local, national, and international communities and we offer many courses through distance learning to specifically respond to the demands of social/justice system work.

Scholarships

We offer entry scholarships of $6,500 CAD. Please note the following criteria:

  • If the student has completed more than 30 credits at the post-secondary level, they will not be eligible for entry scholarships.
  • If the student has completed fewer than 30 post-secondary credits, they do not need to apply for entry scholarships, as any student who applies to study with us is automatically evaluated for eligibility.
  • Although consideration is automatic, receipt of entry scholarships is highly competitive (typically, we would expect a minimum of 90% across all of a student's admission subjects though this does not guarantee scholarship status).
  • Preference is given to students whose applications are submitted by March 1 for the Fall semester
  • Scholarship funding for the Winter and Spring intakes is extremely limited, so entry scholarships usually only go to those who apply for the Fall semester (though some scholarships may be granted in Winter if funding is available).
  • Entry scholarships apply to the student's first year only and are non-renewable
