Legal Administrative Assistant (distance learning) - College of New Caledonia

The College of New Caledonia's 2-year Diploma in Criminology is designed for individuals interested in a career, career advancement, or further education in criminology, criminal justice, or related areas. The Program provides students with a broad, primarily liberal arts-based education in criminology and criminal justice including courses in Criminology, English, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology with options for elective studies in Anthropology, Commerce, Computer Science, Economics, Geography, History, Mathematics, Political Science, and WomenĂs Studies. Moreover, students will acquire particular insight into the criminal justice system in British Columbia and on the 'practices and institutions in northern BC' in addition to an understanding of criminal justice-relevant issues in Canada and the world. Learners will also develop the practical, academic skills required for the criminal justice field such as analytical reasoning, communication, critical thinking, and research. not only through course work but also 'by working directly with personnel from the criminal justice system.'

Graduates of the Program will be prepared to pursue employment, career advancements, and/or further studies in Criminology, Criminal Justice, or related areas. Career-wise, graduates may apply for positions across Canada in such areas as border or community services, corrections, crime prevention, criminal investigation, criminal law, insurance, investigations, law and law enforcement, national security, offender case management, policing, public administration, Revenue Canada, social work, the courts, and victim services, to name but a few. Graduates can, for instance, become bailiffs, corrections officers, detectives, parole officers, police officers, researchers, and social workers. Some careers, however, may require further training upon graduation, and students should also be aware that having a criminal record could be an obstacle to finding employment in criminology, criminal justice, and related fields.

Graduates may also pursue further educational opportunities at various institutes, colleges, and universities across Canada, often with advanced standing. For example, the College has a transfer agreement with Simon Fraser University allowing graduates to 'transfer directly to the third year of SFUĂs Bachelor of Arts in Criminology' or even take a double major at the University. Students who want to take a double major must make sure they take the appropriate 'prerequisite courses for the desired program.' Students intending to transfer to another school upon graduation are advised to consult with a counselor at the College or the school to which one wants to transfer for further information.

To be eligible for admission into the Diploma in Criminology program, applicants must have completed Grade 12, including English 12, or equivalent, which may include Adult Basic Education (ABE) Advanced certificate or General Educational Development (GED) Certificate. Students must also have completed Mathematics 11 or Math 045, which is a requirement for the 2nd year of the Program.
