Graduates of Humber's School of Social & Community Services know how to bring out the best in others and in themselves. Humber teaches students the professional skills needed to make a difference in their chosen field, whether as a child and youth worker, developmental services worker, social services worker or in public/private policy. Excellent field placements provide on-the-job learning opportunities in a range of community agencies and organizations.
“The School of Social & Community Services is about people caring about and effectively supporting other people, while promoting social justice. Society will always need graduates who can be counted on when misfortune or tragedy strike, and whose goal it is to build a better society.”
Gina Antonacci, dean, School of Social & Community Services
Centre for Justice Leadership
For many years, Humber has been leading the way in policing and justice training, offering a variety of programs to students and those already working in the field. Beginning in the fall of 2009, Humber began offering courses through the Centre for Justice Leadership.
Initial program offerings include: a new Criminal Justice Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree, a full-time postgraduate certificate in Crime Scene Investigation, Community and Justice Services, Criminal Justice, and Fire Services and a part-time postgraduate certificate in Transformative Community Justice. The above programs are endorsed by the Canadian Criminal Justice Association, the Ontario Community Justice Association, and the International Corrections and Prisons Association. Not only do students have the benefit of learning from respected industry professionals through both classroom work and hands-on fieldwork placements, they are able to make use of the newly developed crime scene simulation classrooms and forensics studio.
