|Field of Study:||Criminal Justice/Safety Studies
|Description:||This program explores topics related to crime, the criminal justice system and the law. The program looks at the roles and responsibilities of key components of the system that ensure the safety and protection of people and pro p e rty in society. Students will look at the issues of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system and how Aboriginal cultural approaches to corrections, policing and courts are helping to address the legacy of colonization. This legacy is demonstrated in the high rates of Aboriginal people served by the courts and prisons.
The practicum placement allows students to gain experience working with agencies and organizations related to criminal justice. Graduates have entered criminal justice careers in policing, courts, customs, community agencies and adult and youth corrections. The program credit transfers to colleges and universities for further studies leading to a Diploma in Criminology or to a Bachelor of Arts, Criminology. Students may then further their education on to law school.
