The Field Placement Program in Criminology
The field placement is a unique learning experience. It is a great opportunity to observe and experiment criminological practices in the field. Because we are situated in the national capital, we offer diverse field opportunities including but not limited to policy analysis, program development and evaluation, research or front line work with people involved with the criminal justice system.
Devised to enhance pedagogical guidance and supervision, the Field Placement is an excellent opportunity to develop knowledge of the profession as well as hard and soft skills that are transferable to the workplace. Furthermore, students are invited to personalize the Field Placement experience by integrating their personal and professional learning objectives to the more general objectives of the program.
The field placement is an academic activity reserved for students registered in the following programs:
- Honours in Criminology - Field Placement;
- Joint Honours in Criminology and in Feminist and Gender Studies - Field Placement;
- MA Criminology - Courses and Field Placement;
- MA Criminology - Thesis and Field Placement.
