There are no specific secondary school courses required as prerequisites for first year courses leading to the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies program. However, you must meet the admission requirements for the Faculty of Arts and Science (St George Campus). Students admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science are admitted to an area of study (Social Sciences, Humanities, Sciences or Commerce).
Criminology and Sociolegal Studies is not a direct entry program in the Faculty of Arts and Science, University of Toronto. Faculty of Arts and Science students choose their program of study after completion of first year.
First year students interested in studying Criminology and Sociolegal Studies need to enrol in a full-time course load (minimum 4.0 full course equivalents) including two full course equivalent courses at the 100 or higher level in economics, history, philosophy, political science, psychology or sociology (any course combination is acceptable). Students must achieve a minimum mark threshold (average) in these 2.0 required courses in order to be considered for admission to the Criminology program.
The Criminology and Sociolegal Studies Program Office does not administer the admissions process to the Faculty of Arts and Science. For information on how to apply to the Faculty of Arts and Science (and to discuss your admission eligibility) please contact Enrolment Services as they process all applications for admission to the University of Toronto’s undergraduage degree programs (Arts and Science, Commerce, Enginneering etc).
Students admitted to UTSC or UTM who complete one or two years at UTSC or UTM who then wish to transfer to the Faculty of Arts and Science to pursue Crimnology and Sociolegal Studies should read the information provided here.
