crim_wordcloudApproved Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCJ) Electives are courses in CCJ related topics that can be used towards Criminology requirements in the major section of the degree requirements. Students can also use a limited number of courses from this list as ‘free electives’ if they have already satisfied their major requirements for CCJ Approved courses.

The full list of approved topics is available in the Undergraduate Calendar. Below are the lists of CCJ Approved courses offered for the current and past academic years.

Approved CCJ Electives:

       *These lists are subject to change. Please check them regularly!

Please note, while the ICCJ considers the course sections on these lists to be CCJ approved electives, most of them are administered by other departments. Some of these departments may have restrictions on their courses which could prevent registration. If a course section is on these lists it does not guarantee that you will be able to register. Please be sure to review any course restrictions in the schedule to confirm.

Maximum Number of CCJ Credits

The total number of Criminology and Criminal Justice credits in the B.A. and B.A. (Honours) program may not exceed 11.5 (B.A.) and 15.0 (B.A. Honours). This is the sum of credits used in the Major and Concentration PLUS free electives chosen from the list of Approved CCJ electives. Consult the Institute if clarification is required at 613-520-2588.

BE CAREFUL when picking “Selected Topics” courses from this list. They will not be “coded” as CCJ electives until the end of the year and you do not want to jeopardize graduation by exceeding the maximum number of CCJ Electives.
