Description:Humber’s Bachelor of Social Science – Criminal Justice degree program provides you with a broad-based understanding of the criminal justice system, why crime occurs and how best to respond to crime on both a societal and individual level. The curriculum combines both theory and applied skills, providing you with the breadth of knowledge and experience you need to meet the demands of a position in this field. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the perspectives of offenders, front-line professionals, administrators, the community and others who come into contact with the criminal justice system.

In the first year, you will participate in a social science foundation year. You will then focus on specialized criminal justice courses in your second to fourth years of study. Your studies allow you to develop knowledge and skills critical to a variety of fast-paced, ever-changing settings within the criminal justice system. You will gain a fundamental understanding of key concepts and theoretical approaches developed in relation to crime, victimization, criminalization, criminal justice and penal practice. Your courses will include in-depth study of the nature and causes of crime, processes for managing crime, deviance and victimization, mental health and addictions, community safety, rehabilitation, recidivism and progressive reforms, restorative justice, and alternatives to incarceration. Humber’s multidisciplinary teaching approach emphasizes critical thinking, as well as analytical, organizational, research and writing skills. These are combined with the development of professional skills including communication, interpersonal skills, conflict management, problem solving, team building and leadership.
