Criminology

Criminology is the study of crime and is a discipline based on social science and behavioural science research. 


Questions that criminology seek to answer are:

  • Why do people enter into a life of crime? 
  • What is it that makes some people continue to commit crime throughout their lives whilst others 'terminate' their criminal career?
  • Generally, is crime in society increasing or decreasing and, if so, why? 
Criminological research is conducted at the department as well as education on both primary and advanced level.
