Criminology Diploma - Malaspina University-College

Malaspina University-College's 2-year Criminology Diploma is primarily designed for individuals who aspire to a career, career advancement, for further education in Criminology, Criminal Justice, or related fields. Malaspina advises, however, that even though 'the core of the curriculum is centered on justice-related issues, students will find the degree program applies equally to areas in the private sector where research competence, project management, legal analysis and communication skills are essential.' Students will be exposed to the 'conceptual, critical and applied skills to work in fields where a legal/justice focus is beneficial' through a curriculum that focuses on developing their 'professional and applied skills' including 'training in professional ethics, conflict mediation, use of information technology for researching relevant topics, writing, presenting data, and working in small groups on specific tasks.'

Although the Program provides students with a broad liberal arts-based education, including courses from the Humanities and Social Sciences, it more specifically introduces learners 'to criminal law, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and case-law decisions made by the court' and to an examination of 'the three main components of the criminal justice system-police, courts and corrections-that form an organized response to crime.' Students will also analyze 'the trends and correlates of crime, including the influences of age, ethnicity, gender, and social class,' and 'the major explanations for crime' that attempt 'to account for these patterns by looking at historical, individual and social causes.'

Graduates of the Program may pursue employment, career advancement, and/or educational opportunities in Criminology, Criminal Justice, or related fields. Career-wise, graduates may be employed in various positions across Canada, including working for educational or governmental institutions or for employers in the non-profit or private sector. For example, graduates may work in the areas of administration, crime prevention, criminal investigation, criminal law, government, insurance, law and law enforcement, national security, offender case management, policing, private and public investigation, the courts, victim services, and young offenders, to name but a few. Some careers, however, may require further training. Students should be aware that having a criminal record could be an obstacle to finding employment in the Criminal Justice field.

Graduates can also take on further studies in the field at various institutions, colleges, and universities across Canada, often with advanced credit. Students can also transfer into the 3rd year of the Malaspina Criminology (Bachelor of Arts/University Degree Completion) program and complete 2 extra years and earn bachelor degree in Criminology.

Generally, to be eligible for admission to the Program, applicants must have a British Columbia high school diploma, or equivalent, with a minimum of a "C+" grade in English 12, or equivalent, and at least a "C" grade in Applications of Math 11 or Principles of Math 11, or equivalent, or a 'previous degree from a recognized university.' Students transferring from a college or university will be considered provided they are completed 'at least 24 transferable university-level credits.'

Furthermore, 'visiting student from a college or university' will also be considered if they have 'a ˘Letter of Permission÷ from the home institution.' Candidates who do not meet any of the aforementioned criteria may still be eligible but will usually require to take upgrading courses at Malaspina or another institution. The latter applicants should contact a Malaspina advisor before applying. Applicants should be aware that due to the Program having limited enrollment, those 'who meet or exceed the minimum admission requirements may not necessarily be admitted to the program,' and 'depending on the number of applications, an assessment of writing skills and an interview may be required.'
