About this course

What will I learn?

The CCJP program is a collaborative program between the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Department of Political Science. The program distinguishes itself from other Master of Arts (MA) programs in Criminology by having a strong emphasis on criminal justice and governance, while still providing students with the necessary background for continued studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science.


Students can complete the program by coursework, or by writing a thesis or major research paper (MRP). The coursework option will require 4.0 credits (8 courses), the MRP option will require 4.0 credits (6 courses plus the MRP) and the thesis option will require 2.0 credits (4 courses plus the thesis). Core courses offered are: Research Methods in Criminal Justice, Criminological Theory, Governing Criminal Justice, Courts and a ProSeminar in CCJP.

Entry requirements

For international students

Students must have a four-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent) with a minimum “B” average. We anticipate that only students with average of “B+” or higher will be considered for admission. The expectation is that the undergraduate degree will be in Sociology, Criminology or Political Science. However, students with at least five courses in Criminology and/or Public Policy may be admitted, if part of a major in another social science or humanities program.
