Welcome to the bachelor's site.

Taking into account the multi-faceted nature of the discipline, criminology studies are multidisciplinary. The curriculum reflects this, and combines contents on criminology with others on law, psychology, sociology, medicine, statistics and methodology, as well as history and social work.

The theoretical and practical approach of the bachelor's degree ensures that students learn about the social context of crime and gain the professional skills required of a criminologist. As well as a general pathway, the bachelor's degree offers specializations in Safety and Prevention and in Forensic Criminology and Criminal Enforcement.
