DEGREES/PROGRAMS OFFERED 3-Year BA 4-Year BA Honours BA INTRODUCTION The Criminal Justice program examines and explores topics including crime, offenders, victims, the criminal justice system and other forms of social sanctions and controls. Our students learn about historical and contemporary explanations of crime, and become familiar with research literature on criminal justice agencies such as the police, the courts and corrections. Students are challenged to think critically about the key issues confronting the criminal justice system, the strengths and weaknesses of possible reforms, and the ethical dilemmas facing criminal justice practitioners. Graduates may find career opportunities in policing and law enforcement, institutional, community or youth corrections, victim services, criminal justice or social welfare programming, evaluation and research. The program also provides a strong background for those who wish to pursue graduate studies or law school.
