Field of Study:Criminal Justice/Safety Studies
Description:Students who are in their third year of study in the Bachelor of Arts - Criminal Justice can apply to complete the Honours Program in their fourth year of study. Instead of completing a 6-credit practicum and a 3-credit criminal justice option course, honours students complete an Honours Seminar in the Fall semester (3 credits) and an Honours Research Project completed over the Fall and Winter semesters (total of 6 credits).

The purpose of the honours stream is to better prepare students for the additional academic challenges that are associated with graduate and professional schools. Emphasis is placed on enhancing students' ability to work independently and to complete a major research project, primarily in the form of a significant literature review.
