|Description:||Graduates are prepared to be engaged in the process of creating and building safer communities by intervening with offenders, high risk client groups, developing community programs and other initiatives that require measured and appropriate interventions. The Community and Justice Services Program continues the historical legacy of quality established by the Correctional Worker Program. Established in the early 1970s, this program was one of the first offering career training for correctional and community justice work.
Program delivery fosters the development of skills in problem diagnosis, problem solving, critical and creative thinking, and teamwork. Practical application of learning, within the context of the criminal justice system and other community systems that promote community safety, is emphasized. Students participate in real world learning by completing 400 hours of field placement in their final year of study.
