Program description - January 2025

The Bachelor of Community and Criminal Justice is a four-year co-op degree program emphasizing the importance of individual values, principled leadership, and inter-professional and multi-sector collaboration to address individual and societal issues related to crime, community safety, and community well-being. Our program is anchored to a strong foundation in values, service, and action and draws from a rich network of community and institutional collaborators and partners. Through an interdisciplinary program design (psychology/sociology/law/criminology /social work/research), you will be exposed to ideas and learn skills that will enable you to contribute and adapt to changing needs and demands. As a student in our program, you will benefit from our focus on individuals, groups, organizations, and society to tackle the increasing complexity of the community safety landscape. This program combines theory with classroom-based learning and work-integrated experiences, supporting you in developing professional capabilities that will enhance your success in a dynamic specialized labor market. As a program graduate, you will be well-positioned for access to various careers related to community safety and community well-being or to pursue post-graduate training in related fields.
