Criminology is one of the emerging social sciences which offer an insight into the nature of crime and its effects on society. Criminology as a discipline helps to understand and analyze the traditional crimes as well as modern day crimes, process of victimization, Crime prevention and the Criminal Justice System, by applying various Criminological theories.

With this thought in mind, the Department of Criminology and Police Administration was established in the academic year 2018 – 19. Currently we have five staff members with one coordinator and around 350 students enrolled in this department.
