Dr. E. Andreas Tomaszewski is a native of Germany and got his Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Augsburg (Bavaria, Germany) in Canadian Studies and Sociology. After moving to Canada in 1994, he obtained an M.A. in Canadian Studies (1995) and a Ph.D. in Sociology (2002) from Carleton University in Ottawa.

Dr. Tomaszewski’s research is in the Sociology of Crime and Deviance, with a special interest in social control, as well as social justice issues, particularly the connections between forms of inequality (class, ethnic, gender, etc.) and crime. He has done research and  published on Aboriginal justice issues, violence against women, street crime, drugs, transnational crime, social justice pedagogy and the post-secondary experiences of Aboriginal Students  

Before coming to Mount Royal in the fall of 2008, Dr. Tomaszewski taught part-time at the University of Guelph after having resigned from Eastern Michigan University in 2007, where he had worked for six years. At the beginning of his career, he taught full-time at Ohio University and part-time at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. Andreas is very excited about being in the Department of Justice Studies at Mount Royal and in Calgary as they provide him with opportunities to return to some of his major academic (Aboriginal justice issues) and non-academic (all-year-round outdoor activities) passions.
