Justice Studies Correctional Studies

Bow Valley College

Bow Valley College

www.bowvalleycollege.ca
This is a two year (four term) Diploma program that includes a mandatory Work-Integrated Learning component. The Justice Studies curriculum is designed to develop the vital skills, knowledge, and core values that employers are looking for in a wide variety of in-demand career opportunities within justice. Courses within the common first year of study provide learners with a sound academic foundation, with courses in English, psychology, sociology, health and wellness, and an introduction to Canadian law, the Canadian justice system, and addictions. Second year courses build on this foundation by examining criminology, trauma, and promoting principles of fairness, integrity, and ethical practice. In the second year, learners will choose one of three exciting specializations: Correctional Studies, Law Enforcement, or General Justice. General Justice is designed to provide learners with a broader spectrum of knowledge, skills, values, and principles that are integral for all careers within the justice field, as learners can choose the five required specialization courses from any of the other two specializations offered within the Justice Studies Diploma program.
