Department Description

The MA in Police Studies is offered by the Department of Justice Studies. It is directed to police officers and other professionals associated with Canadian police forces, whether federal or municipal, who wish to research topics relevant to policing and police services. The program has an interdisciplinary focus and draws upon several departments of the Faculty of Arts, together with other partners, to provide a social science perspective on policing, and the opportunity to pursue research into specific aspects of that activity. Among them are:

  • Policing in a Liberal Democracy
  • Policing and Rights
  • Policing and Aboriginal People
  • Crime and Society
  • Equity and Race Issues in Policing
  • Policing and Alternative Approaches to Justice
