Diploma in Police Studies

The Police Studies diploma is a ten-course program intended for students with an interest in policing or criminal justice. Police studies may be a valuable complement to students in a variety of programs including sociology, geography, political science, anthropology, psychology and business. Students who have undergraduate degrees may be interested in the diploma as a means of specializing or expanding their knowledge in the policing area. The diploma program is also aimed at addressing the educational needs of existing police officers and others working in the justice field.

For students interested specifically in careers with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) in Newfoundland and Labrador, the RNC accepts the diploma as fulfilling the post-secondary educational qualification for admission to their police cadet program. However, the diploma is no longer a requirement for admission.
