Careers in Criminology

Criminology is the scientific study of the nature, extend, causes and control of criminal behaviour in both the individuals and in the society. This is an interdisciplinary field in behavioural science drawing especially upon the research in the area of deviance as well as on the writings in law. Research areas in criminology like the incidence, forms, causes and consequences of crime as well as social and governmental regulations and reaction to crime have made this profession very important. Accordingly jobs are available in the government as well as in the forensic science and detective organisations worldwide.
