Specialist Progarm (ASSPE0826)

Completion Requirements: Criminology & Sociolegal Studies (ASSPEJ0826)

The Specialist is designed for students who wish to obtain good grounding in Criminology & Sociolegal Studies and will be of interest to students who are studying psychology, sociology, political science, economics, history and philosophy.  Completion of the program requires ten credits which are taken as part of a twenty credit degree program.   Note:  A combination of two majors provides a solid grounding as it allows students to complete at least twelve credits and access to course options that are likely not available if a student completes a Specialist program in one program alone.
