Что я буду изучать?

A Diploma in Criminology will be awarded to students who complete the equivalent of two years of required first and second-year courses at Northern Lights College. The diploma is intended to prepare students for entry-level employment positions and for continued studies in academic and professional programs. Relevant areas of work and additional education include Corrections, Criminology, Criminal Justice, Forensic Studies, and Law Enforcement.

Career Prospects:

By taking a planned combination of Northern Lights College courses, students may gain entry-level employment in or prepare for continued study in the following fields: lawyer, sheriff, police officer, correctional services, parole officer, probation officer, border services, aboriginal liaison officer, or detachment clerk.


Under the terms of an amended block-transfer agreement with Royal Roads University, Northern Lights College students who complete the Diploma will be eligible for block transfer into the third year of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Justice Studies at Royal Roads, provided all other entrance criteria are met and space remains available. NLC students should understand that entrance to all programs at Royal Roads University is on a competitive basis.

Northern Lights College does not have a block transfer agreement with Simon Fraser University's (SFU) School of Criminology. However, the NLC diploma has been designed to meet lower-division requirements for SFU's BA in Criminology. In this case, transfer credit is awarded on a course-by-course basis. Accordingly, NLC students who complete the diploma may also be eligible for admission into upper division course work in SFU's School of Criminology.
