Students who are in their third year of study in the Bachelor of Arts – Criminal Justice can apply to complete the Honours Program in their fourth year of study. Instead of completing a 6-credit practicum and a 3-credit criminal justice option course, Honours students complete an Honours Seminar in the Fall semester (3 credits) and an Honours Research Project completed over the Fall and Winter semesters (total of 6 credits).

Emphasis is placed on enhancing students’ ability to work independently and to complete a major research project, primarily in the form of a significant literature review.
