2 Camosun College School of Arts and Science Criminal Justice Programs Values, Beliefs, Principles Ideals, Values, Beliefs, Principles that Serve as Foundations for the Criminal Justice Programs The Criminal Justice Program is founded on the fundamental principles of natural justice, harm reduction and protection of society. While providing a sound academic foundation, the program also promotes the principles of fairness, equality, equity, integrity, and ethical practice and seeks to instil these values in its graduates. Graduates of both the Associate Degree Program and Diploma in Criminal Justice will leave with the fundamental knowledge, skills and abilities to sensitively contribute to a just and fair society. These values, beliefs, and ideals are an integral part of both curriculum and teaching strategies. They also form the basis of a number of themes or threads that are interwoven through the learning experiences of our students. The Program Graduates The work done by graduates of the Criminal Justice programs is based on a set of fundamental values, beliefs, and legal/ethical principles. These core values, beliefs and principles serve as the foundation of practice in the criminal justice field and underpin all of the teaching/learning activities that take place within the programs. These values, beliefs and principles include: In their approach to their practice, graduates of the Criminal Justice programs display: Critical thinking and effective problem-solving Honesty and integrity 2

4 Protect confidentiality of sensitive information Adapt constructively to changing situations Teaching and Learning Approaches Certain teaching and learning approaches both to content and process help students to incrementally move towards becoming the criminal justice professionals that reflect the values, beliefs and principles that serve as foundational to the Criminal Justice programs. Some of these approaches include: Promoting integration of theory and practice, emphasizing practical application at all levels Promoting critical thinking, problem-solving and informed decision-making through the use of case analysis and other approaches Encouraging the development of critical reflection and research skills Encouraging perspective-taking, and offering students opportunities to justify their position on a variety of issues Assisting students to become effective team players through a variety of interactive, small group experiences Helping students to successfully move through the stages and steps of their development, encouraging and counselling as the need arises Giving useful and frequent feedback on their progress and providing suggestions for ways they might improve, if needed Demystifying and providing accurate information about realities of the field in order that students can make informed choices about their lives Balancing challenge with support Helping and encouraging students to maintain a healthy balance in their lives Helping students shape their identity and find their way in the broad field of criminal justice Serving as models of the type of people who will survive and thrive in the criminal justice field by reflecting skills and abilities such as timeliness, balance, integrity, sharing, honesty, critical problem-solving, respectfulness Emphasizing process as much as outcomes 4

5 School of Arts and Science Programs in Criminal Justice The Criminal Justice Program offers students two educational options: the Associate of Arts Degree Criminal Justice and the Diploma in Criminal Justice. The two options provide students with two years of post-secondary education in this field, though typically Associate of Arts Degree students will continue on to a Bachelor s Degree, while Diploma students will pursue employment in the field. Both options share common core curricula for the first year of the program. At the completion of Year One, students can choose the option best meeting their needs. Students who wish to qualify for both the Diploma in Criminal Justice and the Associate of Arts Degree may apply 75% of the earned credits of the existing Camosun diploma or associate degree towards the required credits for one additional Camosun diploma or associate degree. Diploma in Criminal Justice The Diploma in Criminal Justice prepares students to function as front-line practitioners within the criminal justice field. The applied program provides students with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and values necessary to be successful in a broad range of entry-level positions, with a distinct focus on the integration of theory and practice. Course work also provides an understanding of law, policy, and practice as it pertains to criminal justice. The Diploma may be accepted at a number of universities; for the transferability of individual courses to BC universities, consult the Transfer Guide published by the BC Council on Admissions and Transfers. Students leaving with the Diploma will graduate with competencies including effective interpersonal and communication skills, problem solving, basic conflict resolution and mediation, the management of cases, behaviour and emotions, effective interviewing and report writing, and the ability to be reflective practitioners and successful team members. 5

6 Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice The Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice provides two years of interdisciplinary studies in line with provinciallyestablished Associate Degree requirements. The program of studies provides a fundamental understanding of law, the justice system, criminology, and issues faced by government, community and practitioners. The Associate of Arts Degree will be particularly attractive to students wishing to continue on to traditional upper-level studies focusing on theory and research in criminology. It provides all the courses necessary to transfer directly to third year in the Criminology degree program at Simon Fraser University or other justice-related Bachelor degree programs. These students will leave with academic skills needed for success in upper-level studies, including the ability to communicate clearly and appropriately, to think critically, and conduct effective research. Completion of a Bachelor s Degree in Criminology provides access to specific career areas such as probation, parole, crime analysis, policy analysis, CSIS intelligence analysis, correctional counselling, immigration, diversion, and evaluation research, as well as supervisory positions within the criminal justice system. NOTE: Students in both the Diploma and the Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice take the same courses in the first year of their program of studies. Consequently, students do not have to decide on which program to pursue until they have completed the first year. 6
