If you are into watching shows on Netflix then you probably have an idea of what criminology is all about. It is a branch of sociology, and looks at human behaviour, interaction, and organization. It also links in with philosophy, anthropology, biology and psychology.
Criminologists examine a broad range of topics related to crime. They are dedicated to studying not only the causes of crime but the social roots and impact as well.
The end goal of criminology is to determine the root causes of criminal behavior and to develop effective and humane means for preventing it.
Career opportunities include criminologist, forensic scientist, research assistant and investigator.
