Admission Requirements

The program has two admission streams as follows:

  1. Students who have completed a four-year Criminology undergraduate degree at any Canadian university, with a minimum Cumulative Grade Point average (CGPA) of  3.00/4.33 (B) in the final two years of the program. Due to the highly competitive nature of graduate program admissions, fulfilling the minimum criteria does not guarantee admission.
  2. Students who have completed a four-year undergraduate degree in a related discipline (e.g. sociology, political science, legal studies, women’s studies, social work, peace and conflict studies, etc.), with a minimum CGPA of 3.00/4.33 (B) in the final two years of the program. Due to the highly competitive nature of graduate program admissions, fulfilling the minimum criteria does not guarantee admission. Four-year undergraduate degrees completed from an accredited institution will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

*International university undergraduate degrees will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
