What will I learn?

The Faculty of Social Science and Humanities offers a four-year Criminology and Justice program designed to educate students with a broad range of skills required in a variety of fields from criminal justice to law and social services.

Students learn to build an integrated approach to justice services through the examination of each of the justice system's components, including the victim. Graduates will be skilled in taking leadership roles and more collaborative approaches within their own fields and within the related infrastructures of society.

The first year of study is common to all Criminology and Justice students. Beginning in second year, students will have the opportunity to continue with the unspecialized program or to choose from two areas of specialization – Criminal Justice, or Youth, Crime and Justice.

Criminal Justice specialization

In the Criminal Justice specialization, students will explore the foundations of historical and contemporary patterns of social control, and then turn to more focused consideration of the three main institutions of formal control: police, courts and corrections.
