Bachelor of Applied Arts in Justice Studies (BAA)
The Bachelor of Applied Arts in Justice Studies is open to anyone with a minimum of three years of full-time work experience in a related field and who has completed a high-affinity diploma in Police Foundations, Law and Security Administration or Community and Justice Studies (or recognized equivalent).
This program meets the needs of those involved in the justice field by recognizing prior academic and workplace experience. This includes those not currently in the justice field who wish to upgrade their credentials. Courses are delivered in a hybrid format, which combines intensive in-class weekend lectures with online study. Students can complete the full program in two calendar years if full Prior Learning Assessments and Recognition (PLAR) is earned at admission.
This program is for you if:
- You have a minimum of three years of full-time related work experience.
- You currently possess a Police Foundations, Law and Security Administration or Community and Justice Services diploma (or recognized equivalent).
- For those who do not currently possess one of the required diplomas, there is an alternative pathway through the Police Foundation Leadership diploma program offered by Humber College. Details of this program offering can be found here.
- You want your past work experience and education to count towards earning your degree.
- You want to be able to continue working while earning your degree.
