The program is delivered by faculty with industry expertise, and complemented by subject matter experts who share their knowledge as part of the course curriculum. Our program has a long-standing history of community partnerships that allow students to participate in community projects and unique experiential learning opportunities.  In second year, students complete a 7-week immersive field placement at a community or custody based justice agency that supports graduates as they transition to the profession.
