    Course Summary

    Conestoga College’s Bachelor of Community and Criminal Justice degree program is oriented around establishing values like multi-sector collaboration, inter-professional co-operation, high quality leadership and attention to the needs of the community in order to deliver lower crime levels, enhanced community safety and overall community wellbeing.

    This is a comprehensive 4 year Honours degree which will give you a solid foundation in community safety, and experience working alongside several organisations working in this incredibly important space. You’ll learn the kinds of skills you can’t get in the classroom, from experts who have dedicated their lives to community safety.

    Like most of Conestoga’s degree programs, this one ensures that you gain real world skills through paid co-operative work terms and by delivering integrated applied projects to local organisations. As a result, it gives you vital real world experience, and makes you a much more attractive candidate for your first few roles than a similar applicant without such experience.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
