Experiential learning

Policy Studies

The Policy Studies program contains considerable experiential learning innovation, with a semester-long internship as the centerpiece of our degree. Additionally, you can participate in a weekend-long Model United Nations, or a Moot Court simulation of an appeal of a Supreme Court of Canada decision at the Calgary Courts Center.

Professors across our three disciplines of economics, policy, and political science bring a wealth of real-world knowledge into the classroom gained from their own experiences with organizations such as the World Bank, Canada's Department of Finance, think tanks, and other national and international organizations.

Justice Studies

Study in Alberta's only four-year Bachelor of Arts — Criminal Justice program and expand your understanding of law enforcement, community outreach and victim services. Through theory and hands-on learning such as court visits and mock trials, you'll gain a strong foundation for the workplace or graduate studies.

Faculty in the program are outstanding instructors with extensive field experience. All are actively engaged in research and/or community development. They have investigated issues such as the presentation of DNA evidence in the courtroom, policy analysis of prostitution issues in Canada, geographic mapping of crime patterns and law enforcement effectiveness. They are also involved with many community agencies.
