Program description


The master’s program in criminology will provide you with specialist knowledge on criminal careers, risk assessment and prevention in the areas of crime, substance abuse and mental health problems. The master’s program in criminology has a multi-disciplinary approach and is based on collaboration across the borders of traditional disciplines and subject areas. It also has a focus on applied research. Criminology addresses the individual as well as the societal perspective and therefore includes health related aspects such as psychological ill-health. The program contains in-depth courses in method and statistics and you will independently analyse complex phenomena and formulate research questions related to criminology.
