This is a part-time program and is designed for students who are pursuing a career in one of the components of the criminal justice system.  Normally, applicants will have a minimum of one year of full-time work experience related to the criminal justice system by the time they begin this program. The program requires 8 single-term courses at the 500 or 600-level, plus a project (SOC 900) equivalent to ★3. Students are also required to complete mandatory ethics training and Professional development. Depending on the student’s background, two full-time field placements of four months each may be required.  In addition to taking criminology courses, coursework in related disciplines is encouraged.
