Что я буду изучать?

Study crime, justice, criminal behaviour and social reactions to crime with a northern and regional perspective that better reflects the Yukon and issues unique to the North.

Program description

Criminology is the multidisciplinary study of crime, criminal behaviour, and social reactions to crime and criminal behaviour.

The northern justice emphasis of criminology means that southern-based criminology courses are "northernized" and "regionalized" through integration of relevant course content and the assignment of coursework to better reflect the environment in which northerners live, work and study.

The certificate option is designed for those students who do not intend to transfer directly to a Bachelor of Arts (Criminology) degree program but are interested in taking criminology courses to increase their knowledge of this field of study.

The diploma is fashioned to meet the Yukon University Northern Studies requirements as well as the first- and second-year university transfer requirements to a Bachelor of Arts (Criminology) degree program at major Canadian universities.

The program presents an ideal continuing education opportunity and is useful for those seeking entry-level employment in justice related fields.

  • All certificate requirements (30 credits)
  • Seven advanced CRIM courses (21 credits)
