Overview

Learn how to build stronger, more resilient communities with our new Community Safety degree program — the first of its kind in Canada.

A New Approach to Community Safety

This program is the first of its kind in Canada. It addresses the need for a new way of looking at community safety, focusing on prevention, preparedness and social justice. Traditional law enforcement methods are expensive and don’t always address the diverse needs of Canadian society. That’s why the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, non-profits, and graduate programs endorse this degree.

Build Stronger Communities

In the Community Safety program, you’ll learn about:

  • Government, law enforcement and emergency planning
  • Building partnerships between police and community groups
  • Speaking up for traditionally marginalized groups and vulnerable people
  • Empowering citizens to build safer and more resilient communities

Think Globally, Act Locally

You’ll also learn how global events, like war and climate change, affect people at the local level. How do these events shape our perception of safety? How does the use of social media influence our understanding of these events? Throughout this program, you’ll develop a strong understanding of the challenges communities face. And you’ll explore new ways to address those issues.

An Integrated Approach

This program offers a new model for community wellness. It combines the social sciences, leadership, policing and crisis management. Projects span classes and subjects, so you’ll develop a broad perspective.

Gain Critical Skills and Experience

You’ll also have the chance to apply your unique skills to a full-time co-op work term between Semesters 7 and 8. You’ll work in areas related to your career interests, such as government, law enforcement or non-profit work.

Career opportunities

Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Community Safety program prepares you for a variety of career paths. When you graduate from this program, you’ll be well prepared for careers in public, private or non-profit sectors, such as emergency management, crisis intervention, community building, and law enforcement. You’ll also be eligible for graduate studies in fields like social work, sociology, or public administration.

  • Community agencies
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Provincial governments
  • Municipal governments
  • Policing
