Program Information

School:University of Ottawa/Université d'Ottawa - Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies
Faculty:Graduate Programs
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Criminology
Description:Criminology is devoted to the scientific analysis of crime, justice and social control. It focuses on four broad questions: the social construction of norms and the notion of crime; the criminalization of specific behaviours, individuals and groups in our society; the analysis of the goals and functioning of the criminal justice system; and the examination of contemporary forms of intervention.
The Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level is designed for students from Criminology who have an interest in women's studies. These students have the opportunity to combine advanced studies in their primary program with analyses from a women's studies perspective. The degree awarded is a master's degree in the primary program with a "specialization in Women's Studies".

Students who do not have an adequate background may be eligible to our Special Policy for Admissions. Applications for admission to the Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level are submitted at the same time as the application for admission to the Master's program of the relevant discipline.

The letter of intention submitted with the application should include a clear account of the “women’s studies” dimension in the proposed topic of research.
