About the Department: 
In 1950, UNESCO realized the significance of the teaching of Criminology at the College and University levels in Asia, and in 1955, a consensus emerged in a symposium held in London. University of Saugor (Sagar) responded to that consensus first and as a result, the Department of Criminology was established on 18th  July 1959 largely due to the initiative taken by Shri D. P. Mishra, (the then Vice Chancellor, 1956-1962, and later Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh).  The former Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Justice G. P. Bhatt was appointed as its first regular Professor and Head of the department. After some years, Forensic Science was added and it became the Department of Criminology and Forensic Science.
The department of Criminology and Forensic Science is running two different courses under the School of Applied Sciences. The department is involved in teaching Criminology and Forensic Science at the graduate and postgraduate levels leading to M.A. in Criminology and M.Sc. in Forensic Science respectively along with the research facilities for Ph.Ds. in both the disciplines. The department is recognized as a DST-FIST-sponsored department. The contributions of the department are various and remarkable in teaching and research. The alumni of the department are occupying outstanding positions and are globally known for their achievements.
Vision: This department aspires to be recognized for its excellent teaching and research work in the global scenario.
Mission: Our mission is to continuously improve and enhance the subject of Criminology and Forensic Science through innovative teaching, and research work.
