Program description

Honours Bachelor of Applied Arts in Social Justice & Legal Studies

The Honours Bachelor of Applied Arts in Social Justice & Legal Studies four year bachelor degree program combines the foundational knowledge and strengths of three pillars instrumental in bringing about socio-political development and positive change: poverty law, social justice, and community capacity building as achieved through education, advocacy and activism. This multifaceted and interdisciplinary program, delivered primarily face to face with on-line support and some hybrid delivery, also includes curriculum providing a strong foundation of both the theoretical underpinnings as well as established practices in criminology, sociology, social work, philosophy, political science, Canadian law, community capacity building, and the study of under-represented and/or vulnerable populations.

The program curriculum will stimulate the development of an inquiring mind, increase sensitivity for inequalities, and encourage independent judgment and critical self-awareness. Graduates will not only be equipped to assist individuals, groups, organizations and coalitions to navigate the social-legal system in pursuit of democracy, participation and inclusiveness in the design and realization of equitable laws, but also be well prepared to pursue graduate studies in social justice and related fields.
