Criminal Justice (Criminology)
„Criminology is a study of crime, those who commit crimes and the criminal justice system. I have long been interested in this discipline and this year I was given an opportunity to launch this fascinating course and invite brilliant and passionate lecturers to teach a number of specialist modules. Although criminology has recently become a popular subject to study in Poland, crime, in fact, has always existed in society. If you consider working with offenders or victims of crime; if you feel like broadening your knowledge of the criminal justice system or specific criminological issues; and if you want to learn all this entirely in English – this 2-year Master’s degree in Criminal Justice is the right course for you.
As a Criminal Justice graduate you will be attractive to employers both inside and outside the criminal justice sector. Alternatively, you could choose the same career path as I did and become an academic. My first and foremost intention for this course is to develop your criminological imagination and transfer the criminological theory into criminal justice practice. Therefore, I would like to cordially invite you to join us on this academic journey at Collegium Civitas.”

By its nature, crime is a dynamic, multi-dimensional and context-dependent phenomenon that affects not only offenders and victims, but also their families, communities, and wider society at large. In response to a growing interest in the subject of criminality and the field of criminology, this stimulating 2-year Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice provides an opportunity for students, or criminal justice professionals, to acquire sophisticated criminological knowledge and critically engage with current debates within criminology that impact upon the functioning of the criminal justice systems in many countries. This course will draw upon cutting-edge, internationally recognised research and equip students with the advanced understanding of crime, punishment and its alternatives, the workings of the criminal justice system and the delivery of criminal justice policies. In studying this discipline at postgraduate level students will also broaden their skills in research design and undertake original and empirical criminological research. Apart from gaining a broad overview of criminal justice processes, students will have a chance to specialise in particular aspects of criminology, as the course offers an extensive range of specialist modules.
Who is it for?
This course aims to attract English speaking students with criminal justice career aspirations, or those already working in the field as criminal justice practitioners, who will become adept at making informed decisions that support positive changes in the criminal justice system. The Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice will suit students who are graduates of sociology, law, psychology or other related degrees. This course offers the opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and confidence to take your career to the next level, and is also an excellent point of departure for a research career.
The course is designed to enhance your career prospects in roles linked to criminal justice institutions such as the police, courts, prosecution, probation, prison service, as well as social services and non-governmental organizations. The course will also suit those who consider a career in international law enforcement co-operation.
