While policing and corrections are highly desirable occupations, the skills taught in this program will allow graduates to work in a variety of roles in the justice field. There are many careers that a graduate of the Justice diploma program can pursue. Specifically, justice graduates with a two-year diploma can pursue positions in justice-related fields such as:

  • police officer (civilian and EPS)
  • probation officer
  • case worker
  • community police/peace officer
  • transit security
  • RCMP
  • military police
  • victim services & advocacy
  • investigators (fair trade, student loans, private investigator)

Some careers that are highly desirable to prospective students, such as Edmonton Police Services officer, may not be possible right after graduation due to strict recruitment procedures and life/career experience and age requirements. NorQuest will provide information about the varied career pathways available throughout the program and will help students work towards meeting their occupational goals.
