Andalusian Interuniversity Institute of Criminology, Málaga
The Andalusian Interuniversity Institute of Criminology (IAIC) is a scientific and technical research university centre, as well as a place for academic specialisation, that undertakes activities within the field of penal, penitentiary, criminological and political-criminal disciplines.
Researching the causes and focusing on the prevention of criminal behaviour explains why jurists, psychologists, social workers, police officers, doctors, journalists and other professionals from a wide range of fields find an ideal instrument for their professional improvement and promotion in the interdisciplinarity of Criminology. Moreover, in today’s advanced society, Criminology can be key to the new services that are constantly being created (victim assistance offices, teams of technical experts in penitentiary institutions, assistance for marginalised groups, juvenile correctional services, etc.).
The Málaga section of the Andalusian Interuniversity Institute of Criminology started offering its courses during the academic year 1992/1993, and has, since then, been both improving and widening its academic offer.
