Corrections and Forensic Practice

Program Overview

Forensic practice consists of health and human service workers who occupy and come into contact with professions found in corrections and parole, child welfare and protection, and mental health and well-being. Forensic practice is multidisciplinary in nature, a combination of areas such as social work, criminology, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, child development and other related academic disciplines.

What You Will Learn

Students will learn how to intervene in a variety of settings within the criminal justice system, will become familiar with how to provide clear and professional testimony in court hearings, and will strengthen their skills at navigating the social services system to help reduce recidivism. Graduates of this program find employment in case management, police departments, probabtion and parole, court systems, residential settings, juvenile detention centres, and other similar correctional settings.
