Applicants usually have a master`s degree in criminology or a related field with a minimum A degree or equivalent from a recognized university. Students with a master`s degree in disciplines not related to criminology or social law studies may take additional courses as part of their doctoral program. The Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies (CrimSL) is a research and teaching unit of the University of Toronto. Founded in 1963 by Professor John Edwards, CrimSL faculty and students study crime, justice, and governance through law from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and theoretical approaches. With backgrounds in sociology, anthropology, history, law, psychology, philosophy and political science, the faculty is actively engaged in criminological and social law research in Canada and abroad. The CrimSL Library (Criminology Information Service) houses the largest collection of criminological research materials in Canada, consisting of more than 25,000 books, journals, government reports, statistical sources and other materials. Note: Students may use a maximum of 1.0 credits of independent courses and 1.0 credits of research participation courses for the Criminology and Social Law program. The content of a particular year depends on the instructor. Intensive courses are offered by high-level visitors from all over the world.
4th year students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to study with one or more outstanding international scholars that the Centre for Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies brings with them from time to time. The intensive course usually lasts about 3-4 weeks. The compulsory course (0.5 FCE) is CRI2010H Methodological Issues in Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies.

Applications to the Centre for Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies must be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) via the online application, which is hosted on a secure server at the University of Toronto. The first is criminology, which can be briefly defined as the study of all aspects of crime, including its definitions, causes and intellectual genealogy, as well as policy and institutional responses to it.
While criminology has some aspects of a distinct discipline, including its own theoretical schools, journals, and academic departments, it also relies heavily on related disciplines of the social sciences. The Centre`s faculty research covers a wide range of topics and methodological approaches. Some professors work with large datasets to ask questions about criminal justice. Others work with a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods. Others deal with social law research, which sometimes uses both legal papers and empirical research, but asks different questions than those usually asked in law schools. The programme familiarizes students with existing research institutions in criminology and social law and develops critical, analytical and methodological skills. It is neither a forensic training program nor a professional legal study. Rather, it aims to train students for careers in teaching or research as well as professions in which the ability to critically evaluate criminological or social law research is necessary or desirable.
