The Department of Sociology is the only academic institution in Macao that provides full-fledged training in the field of sociology together with criminology and anthropology. The Department of Sociology now offers an undergraduate programme leading to Bachelor of Social Sciences in Sociology, as well as a postgraduate programme leading to Master of Social Sciences in Criminology and Criminal Justice. The Department also offers Doctor of Philosophy with specialization in either sociology or criminology. Our undergraduate program aims at offering a greater diversity of courses that would provide more room for the students to actively pursue their specific interests, and to build up their problem-solving capacity in applying what they have learnt to social reality. Tailored to the practical needs of a fast changing society as Macao and mainland China, our criminology programme aims at providing professional training to those who work or aspire to work in crime control institutions such as police force and rehabilitation service, as well as enhancing the quality of operations of criminal justice agencies by equipping them with research-based scientific knowledge.
