Collaborative and Combined Programs

Combined JD/MA Program

Although applications must be submitted independently to both the Faculty and the Centre of Criminology, they are not necessarily assessed simultaneously. In fact, most students apply for this combined program after they have begun their first year in J.D. studies. Since that year involves Law courses exclusively, there is little advantage to applying earlier.

The deadline for receipt of Criminology applications is February 1. This is the same for all applicants, whether they apply just to the Centre or to the Faculty of Law as well.

If you are interested in applying for the graduate program in Criminology (whether or not you are accepted into the J.D. program), please download a copy of the Criminology Graduate Programs Handbook and information on the application package.

For more information, see the School of Graduate Studies Calendar entry

Combined JD/PhD Program

This program is designed for students interested in studying the intersections of law and criminology and sociolegal studies. The CDP permits the completion of both degrees in six years rather than the seven years it would take to acquire them independently.

For more information, see the School of Graduate Studies Calendar entry

Collaborative Programs

Please note that in addition to submitting an application for the graduate program in Criminology, you must contact the departments concerned regarding the Women’s Studies programme and the Addiction Studies (CoPAS) program. Each department should provide you with the details on course requirements and regulations concerning separate applications for their program.

For information on both the Women’s Studies and CoPAS programs, please download a copy of the Criminology Graduate Programs Handbook.
