Dear Faculty Members,

I am pleased to announce the opening of the School of Criminology under the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Criminology is an interdisciplinary field of study, combining research from different disciplines such as sociology, law, psychology, philosophy, demography and more. Criminological study strives to advance analytical and scientific analysis, and thus the understanding, of crime, social deviance and victimization. We hope that the newly established school will attract high quality undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Our graduate program (MA)  offers two specializations:  Crime and Addictions ;  Crime, Low and Society. In addition, the school is at an advanced stage in developing an undergraduate curriculum (BA). 

The School of Criminology strives to promote theoretical and empirical research that addresses applied applications and is oriented towards policymaking. The school's advanced program seeks to develop and provide analytical skills so that students will be able to analyze and evaluate various criminological phenomena such as crime, delinquency and victimization. The school curriculum provides advanced students with a wide range of methodological tools (quantitative and qualitative) and prepares them for consulting positions as well as positions in law enforcement and correctional institutions.

The School recently hired new and energetic young faculty members from different disciplines in the study of criminology, such as road-traffic delinquency, state crimes and restorative justice. In addition, affiliated to the school are a team of experts in criminal law, corrections and risk behavior. We are working towards establishing research centers in these various fields.

 The school offices are located in Eshkol Tower, 23 Floor.
