About

University of Ottawa, Criminology is devoted to the scientific analysis of crime, justice and social control. It focuses on four broad questions: the social construction of norms and the notion of crime; the criminalization of specific behaviours, individuals and groups in our society; the analysis of the goals and functioning of the criminal justice system.

Overview

University of Ottawa, Criminology master's program consists of three distinct 30 credit options: one with major research paper, one with thesis, and one with a thesis and field placement.

These three options are intended to equip students with knowledge of the major theoretical and methodological frameworks in criminology so that they will be able to critically analyze them and apply this knowledge to describe and explain conceptual and empirical problems of crime, justice and social control, both within the framework of optional courses or of an internship seminar with an on-site internship.

Thus, a master’s degree with three options is offered:

  • Option with thesis (120 pages). In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a thesis and three elective courses.
  • Option with thesis (120 pages) and field placement. In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a thesis, a field placement seminar and a field placement of 360 hours in an environment that responds to the learning interests of the student.
  • Option with Major Research Paper (60 pages) that allows the student to complete the program on a part-time basis beginning in the fourth semester of registration. In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a major research project and five elective courses.
