Program Overview

Build a career in community justice

Be part of an exciting and in-demand field. Our Community and Justice Services program looks at criminal justice through the lens of corrections and rehabilitation. Learn to work with individuals in the court system, during imprisonment and after release. After graduation, you may work as a correctional officer or help others re-enter society at a halfway house or other community agency.

Outstanding career preparation

Sheridan’s Community and Justice Services program gives you a strong foundation that gets you ready for the workplace. You’ll explore the social sciences, such as psychology, criminal law and criminology. You’ll learn through lectures, guest speakers and group activities. You’ll also have the opportunity to make connections with community agencies.

What you'll learn

  • How to use static and dynamic security techniques.
  • How to develop and implement a correctional program.
  • Methods for crisis intervention and prevention.
  • Offender case management.
  • How to work with clients with addictions and mental illnesses.

Field experience

The Community and Justice Services program includes two field practicums. You’ll first have an interview to talk about your career interests. Then you’ll do a field placement in a community and justice agency. You could work at an adult institution, youth facility, community agency or residential facility. These practicums can be a great path to employment.
