Diploma In Criminology And Social Order

Fees Detail


In the world today, there is a growing interest particularly among academics, law makers and law enforcers in interrogating criminal behavior and its treatment by the criminal justice system notably the law and order enforcement agencies (both public i.e., the police and private i.e., private security firms), the criminal law fraternity including the judiciary and advocates, the penal institutions, and the general public. The interest comes, partly, due to the realization on how society is fast changing and the emerging of forms of organized crime including drug and human trafficking and a hub for money laundering. Particularly the evidence there is of the society being threatened by violent crimes like terrorism owing to the political and religious volatility in the region, especially as it relates to the Somalia crisis that directly and indirectly engulfs Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Uganda, USA and groups of Arab/Muslim fighters. Apart from the existing of criminal behavior whose levels, now and in the future, demands effective interventions there is also a disquiet among academics, the media, policy makers, politicians and general public on the effectiveness of the criminal justice system. In this regard there are evidence-based scholarly works as well as popular allegations indicating dire challenges in the police, judiciary and penal institutions. In addressing these issues, the Department of Sociology in the University of Nairobi has developed a Diploma Course on criminology and social development
