A course taken on a CR/NCR basis may not be used to satisfy major or specialist program requirements. One exception: courses completed in the Winter 2015 session.
Electives (non-CRI courses)
Some electives may be available only to students who have completed specified prerequisites or who are enrolled in a subject POSt sponsored by the department offering the course. Not all courses are offered every year. For detailed information please check the enrolment controls and timetable on the Arts and Science website. Prerequisites, corequisites and exclusions are published in the Calendar.
Not all courses are offered every year. Please check the Faculty of Arts and Science’s timetable for the list of courses offered in the current session. Almost all CRI courses have prerequisites. Enrolment in CRI courses is restricted to students in the Criminology and Sociolegal subject POSt. We are unable to accommodate non-program students. Students without course prerequisites will be removed at any time they are discovered. Graduates of the program may enrol in additional courses provided there is room available. Requests will be considered in August only (once current program students have registered during the first round of registration) and must be forwarded to the Program Coordinator via email.
Students follow the program requirements for the year in which they were admitted to the program. The requirements can be found in the e-brochures posted on this site (see link on left-hand side)
It is possible to complete the major program on a part-time basis but course options are limited. Also some of the required intro courses are offered in the late afternoon only and part-time students will have to make arrangements to take CRI205H1S and 210H1F from 4-7 pm in the 20169 and 20171 academic year.
College Sponsored Programs
Criminology and Sociolegal Studies is a program sponsored by the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies. In 2013, the undegraduate Criminology program was transferred from Woodsworth College to the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies. The close relationship between the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies and Woodsworth College will help to foster even greater academic excellence for students enrolled in the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies program as they will continue to benefit from the rich academic support services and facilities available at the College, including the Academic Writing Centre.
Woodsworth College remains the home of the Undergraduate Program Office and the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies Students' Association. Woodsworth College and the Faculty of Arts and Science. It is not necessary to be registered at Woodsworth College but it is necessary to be registered at one of the seven colleges on the St. George Campus.
It takes two years to complete the Criminology major program. Prerequisites will not be waived. Students are advised to carefully weigh the impact a program change may have on their studies. Exemptions or prerequisite waivers in order to ‘fast track’ the program requirements will not be granted.
If you are planning to graduate in November 2015 or June 2016, you should check your program status on Degree Explorer and arrange for the Program Coordinator to confirm your status on DEX. You may send your request, along with your student id number to the Undergraduate Coordinator. Requests must be emailed using the utor email account. Confirmations will be mailed to the student via DEX.
Appropriate subject post combinations for your Degree Program & Double Counting Courses

While you are waiting for the results of your limited enrolment subject POSt request (s) - such as Criminology, you must enrol in interim backup programs and courses.
Any program combination (2 majors or 1 major and 2 minors) must include at least 12 different courses. Please review the Degree and Program Requirements listed in the Calendar. If you have any questions please contact your college registrar’s office for assistance.
