The department of Criminology offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Criminology.

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.

Master's Program

The master's program consists of three distinct 30 unit options: one with major research paper, one with thesis, and one with a thesis and field placement. These three options are intended to equip students with knowledge of the major theoretical and methodological frameworks in criminology so that they will be able to critically analyze them and apply this knowledge to describe and explain conceptual and empirical problems of crime, justice and social control, both within the framework of optional courses or of an internship seminar with an on-site internship.

Thus, a master’s degree with three options is offered:

  • Option with thesis (120 pages). In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a thesis and three elective courses.
  • Option with thesis (120 pages) and field placement. In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a thesis, a field placement seminar and a field placement of 360 hours in an environment that responds to the learning interests of the student.
  • Option with Major Research Paper (60 pages) that allows the student to complete the program on a part-time basis beginning in the fourth semester of enrollment. In addition to the mandatory core courses, the acquisition of thematic theoretical and methodological competencies is achieved by means of a major research project and five elective courses.

The Department offers a collaborative program in Women’s Studies at the MA level. For more information on this program, see “Admission Requirements.”

The Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level is designed for students from selected disciplines in arts, education, health sciences, law, social sciences, and counselling and spirituality (Saint Paul University), 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".

The programs are offered in English and French and are governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.

For the most accurate and up to date information on application deadlines, language tests and other admission requirements, please visit the specific requirements webpage.

To be eligible for admission to the MA program:

  • Students must hold a Bachelor's degree with a major in Criminology or equivalent with a minimum average of 75% (B+).
  • Their previous studies must have included CRM 4304 and CRM 3334 or equivalent. If not, they will have to take them as additional courses during their first term in the MA program.

The Qualifying Program

If the student has an Honours degree in a related field (e.g., sociology, psychology, law, social work, political science, history, philosophy) but is considered to have insufficient training in the theoretical and methodological traditions of the criminological discipline, the student may be offered a qualifying year involving up to 24 units in order to render the student eligible to pursue studies in the Master's program. To successfully complete the qualifying year, the student must pass all courses (passing grade is C+) and have an average of B+. It is necessary to submit a new application, during the qualifying year, for admission to the Master's program to be considered. The student will receive an offer of admission to the Master's program which will be conditional on the successful completion of the qualifying year.

Collaborative Program in Women's Studies

The Department of Criminology is a participating unit in the collaborative master's program in women's studies. This program has been established for students wishing to enrich their training in criminology by including an interdisciplinary component in women's studies. The specific requirements of the collaborative program include two core courses and a thesis or major research paper on a topic related to women's studies. In addition, for those students who have chosen the option of MA with thesis and field placement, the field placement offered to the student will be related to issues involving feminist concerns.

To be accepted in the Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level, applicants must first be accepted to the master's program in a participating program. Successful applicants will normally hold an honours degree or the equivalent and have a minimum average of 70 per cent (B). They must also have a background in women's studies, that is, a minimum of two undergraduate level courses or one graduate level course on women, gender, feminism or sexualities. Students who do not have an adequate background may be eligible to our Special Policy for Admissions.

Students must apply for acceptance in the women's studies collaborative program at the same time as they apply for admission to the master's program in criminology. Only one application for admission is required for the collaborative Master’s program. In exceptional cases, students could commence their specialization in women's studies in their second term of their primary program.

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.

Language Requirements

All applicants must be able to understand speak and write either English or French proficiently. Applicants whose first language is neither English nor French must provide proof of proficiency in one or the other. The list of acceptable tests is indicated in the “Admission” section of the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.

In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students have a right to produce their work, their thesis, and to answer examination questions in French or in English.

Collaborative Program in Women's Studies

Students admitted to the collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level must meet the requirements for a master's degree in their primary program as well as the requirements of the women's studies program. Normally, the women's studies courses are recognized as partial fulfillment of the requirements of the student's primary program, in which case the passing grade in the relevant FEM course or courses is the same as that specified for the primary program.

Compulsory Courses:
FEM 5103Feminist Methodologies3 Units
FEM 5300Feminist Theories3 Units
Thesis or Major Research Paper

Note(s)

  • Students must complete the two compulsory courses before their first enrollment for the major research paper or thesis.
  • The thesis or major research paper must be on a topic related to women, gender, feminism or sexualities. The proposed topic must be approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee as well as by the student’s primary program. The thesis or major research paper must demonstrate knowledge of feminist scholarship in the field or fields appropriate to the topic, and of feminist methodologies where applicable.
  • The thesis supervisor must possess Women’s Studies and/or feminist expertise. In the case of a major research paper, the supervisor should, ideally, possess Women’s Studies and/or feminist expertise. If not, one of the readers must possess such expertise. Joint supervision by a professor from the participating unit and a professor chosen by the WSGC may be appropriate in some cases.
  • Thesis or Major Research Paper Proposal: The thesis or major research paper proposal must be approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee as well as by the primary program. Usually the thesis or major research paper proposal is submitted to women’s studies by the end of the third term of the first year of studies. For the primary programs that do not require a proposal, students must still submit a proposal to the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee.
  • Examiner or Reader: One of the examiners (for the thesis) or reader (for the major research paper) must be a person approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee.

Language of Instruction

In accordance with University of Ottawa policy, students have a right to produce their work and to answer examination questions in French or in English.

Duration of Program

Students are expected to complete all requirements within two years. The thesis must be submitted within four years of the date of initial enrollment in the program.

Residence

All full-time students must complete a minimum of three terms of full-time enrollment.

FEM 6501 Rapports sociaux de sexe, pouvoir et représentations (3 crédits)

Ce cours analyse les diverses théories féministes qui visent à formaliser les concepts de genre, de pouvoir et de représentation. Les représentations des différences entre les genres/les sexes y sont abordées sous l'angle de leur construction sociale, ainsi que des rapports de pouvoir qui leur sont intrinsèquement liés. Le cours examinera également la façon dont les rôles et les attentes quant au genre sont aussi façonnés par des représentations concernant la classe, « la race » et l'ethnicité, la sexualité, l'âge, la nationalité et la présence/l'absence de handicap.
