This Bachelor of Community and Criminal Justice is a four-year, paid co-op degree program that emphasizes the importance of individual values, principled leadership, and inter-professional and multi-sector collaboration to address individual and societal issues related to crime, community safety and community wellbeing.
This program is anchored to a strong foundation in values, service and action and draws from a rich network of community and institutional collaborators and partners. Through an intentionally designed learning journey, students are exposed to ideas and learn skills that will enable them to contribute and adapt to changing needs and demands. The “ecological” focus on individuals, groups, organizations, and society helps students tackle the increasing complexity of the community safety landscape.
The combination of classroom-based and work-integrated learning forms a “bridge to practice,” so students can develop the capabilities that will position them as preferred graduates for the labour market of the next decade.
The co-op work term occurs during the spring/summer term between the third and fourth years of the program. The co-op work term runs for 14 weeks.
Graduates will be well prepared for careers as probation and parole officers, police officers, community workers, front-line youth workers, policy analysts and program planners within government. Graduates may also work in crime prevention and response, community building, and within regulatory agencies. Training in criminal justice and human behaviour provides meaningful preparation for those seeking positions within other criminal justice fields including institutional corrections and border security. Scholarly and analytical skill development will also provide a strong foundation for those wishing to pursue graduate training in related disciplines.
