About

The Justice Studies program at the Royal Roads University will be intense, whether you choose the blended learning track or the on-campus option, but you will have a solid foundation upon which to enhance your personal development and propel your career. 

Careers

Your future classmates are interested in beginning a career within the justice-related field or furthering their current role within their organization. You will work together in small groups, using your diverse experiences to complete your individual and group assignments, and the connections you create in your program help form a network of support you can turn to for the rest of your career. 

Upon graduation you will be able to demonstrate your ability to critically assess issues related to justice studies based on the theoretical and practical skills you have developed in your program. 

You will have a solid understanding of the Canadian legal system, effective conflict management skills, and hands-on training in alternative dispute resolution practices, enabling you to use your degree to pursue a career within the realms of criminal justice, social justice human rights, advocacy, conflict resolution, and mediation.
