Comments about Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Jusitice - At the institution - Victoria - British Columbia

  • Objectives
    The Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice provides two years of interdisciplinary studies in line with provincially-established 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.
  • Practical experience
    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 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 of 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.
