Detecting and combatting crime is becoming increasingly complex. Security is high on the national and international agenda. The master’s programme Crime and Criminal Justice in Leiden provides the skills to face these challenges.
Students choose the master’s programme Crime and Criminal Justice because they have an affinity with human behaviour and crime and want to learn more to be able to make a contribution in preventing and fighting crime. Criminologists (lawyers and non-lawyers) are employed by organisations such as the police, the Public Prosecution Service, the prison system, the probation service, victim support, consultancy and research agencies, security companies and in the business sector.
