Important notice: The police studies diploma program and the RNC cadet program are in a period of transition. Further information on this transition can be found on the police studies program page.

The diploma in police studies is offered exclusively to students who are recruit cadets of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC). The program provides recruit cadets with academic components of a degree program relevant to their future work as police officers.

Interested students who are not recruit cadets of the RNC may wish to consider the bachelor of arts major in police studies.
