Course content

The Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, founded in ​1964, offers advanced interdisciplinary study in two closely related, overlapping areas: criminology and sociolegal studies. MA graduates find employment in government (in areas such as child and youth services or addiction as well as criminal justice fields), in governmental organizations in the criminal justice field, in social science research, or in other positions for which a background in criminology and legal studies is useful. Some choose to go to law school, and many have gone on to other post-graduate work, such as in criminology, sociology, law, and social work. PhD graduates have mainly found employment in tenure-​track positions, most often in sociology departments or in criminology programs. Both the MA and PhD degree programs are academic rather than professional/vocational.

Students enrolled in doctoral programs in other departments of the University of Toronto may apply to be appointed as Junior Fellows at the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies. The objective of the Junior Fellow program is to involve doctoral students whose work overlaps with the research conducted at the centre and to enhance the interdisciplinarity of the centre. Junior Fellows have come from history, geography, law, and sociology. Exceptionally, doctoral students pursuing degrees at other universities but residing in Toronto may apply to be appointed as Visiting Junior Fellows.
