Introduction to Criminology for Economic students

Content

Crime fighting institutions (like the police, but also other government agencies and parties in the private sector such as banks) have a great demand for graduates who can link economic knowledge with criminological insights. The criminology minor offers an excellent background in the theme of crime and the punishment of crime.

Goal

You will gain insights in the field of criminology. In addition to the behavior of criminals, extensive attention is also paid to how you can conduct research in the field of crime. While official data can often be used for economic research (quantitative research), this is much less the case with criminological research. This minor deals with how you can then still collect the relevant information and draw conclusions (with qualitative research). This minor provides a good preparation for the master Criminology.
