Criminology

A Master in Criminology is an interdisciplinary scientific field of study and research of crime, the nature and reasons for criminal behavior as well as controlling it. Master in Criminology programs generally merge the knowledge of Behavioral Science, Sociology of Deviance and Social Anthropology.

There are a number of areas of interest for a Master in Criminology; they follow the logic and structure of crime. On one hand the areas include study of incidence and forms and causes of crime; on the other hand the subject for research is governmental/state regulations and reaction to crime. Study of crime and a multidisciplinary approach to the matter is important for effective crime prevention, therefore a Master in Criminology includes such topics as public safety, urban studies, policy analysis and practice along with the leading concept of theory of crime.
