Overview

NorQuest College’s Justice diploma program is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to gain skills and knowledge for a wide variety of Justice-related professions and further educational opportunities . It is a unique offering in the Edmonton region and in Alberta. The program offers broad education in the justice field that can lead directly to a career as well as university transfer courses for laddering opportunities to university. Students will select from a variety of electives in areas such as diversity and inclusion, Indigenous justice, youth work, and criminal justice studies.

Justice students will explore a broad range of skills important to a justice career including crisis intervention skills, health and wellness initiatives, collaborative skills, and strategies for working with diverse groups of Canadians.  Read about our first-year Justice program courses: JUST 1101 and JUST 1102.

Student Success

Students are more likely to be successful in this program if they have:

  • A high standard of personal and professional ethics
  • Respect for diversity
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Well-developed reading and writing skills
  • An openness to viewpoints and perspectives that are not their own

Note: The Justice program is open to anyone who meets the admission requirements. However, prospective students should be aware that individuals with police records, criminal convictions, or charges pending may encounter barriers securing employment in some justice-related fields. These individuals also might be unable to participate in site or facilities visits, or in the Honours Internship. Applicants with further questions are encouraged to contact the program chair at justice@norquest.ca.

Practicum/Work Experience

A competitive entry, work-integrated learning course will be optional for students in the final term.
