Criminology and criminal justice

Available in South Africa only.

The study of criminology and criminal justice will equip students who have an interest in deviance, conflict, crime and victimisation – and communities in general – with the knowledge needed for creating and maintaining a safe society.

Crime and victimisation have severe consequences for the sustained development of a society, the economy and ecology. This subject provides expert knowledge to deal effectively with crime, conflict and victimisation and to promote a democratic and just society with a human rights perspective as set out in the South African Constitution and Bill of Rights.
