Criminal Justice Certificate

The 12-credit Certificate in Criminal Justice is designed to familiarize students with the organization and operation of the major branches of the criminal justice system, their mandate, and related materials about the nature and causes of crime. Students are introduced to basic legal aspects of administrating justice, the organization and management of justice services, as well as some of the behavioral dimensions of how the judges and other key partners in the justice system carry out their respective roles.
