3. Bachelor of Arts in Police Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Police Studies offered by the University of Regina is a four-year degree program. It includes three years of liberal arts study, followed by a fourth year, which is comprised of one-term at Police College and a one-term internship with a police service. The liberal arts portion of the program introduces students to the diversity and complexity of Canadian society and to the role of law and policing in modern democracies. This innovative program exposes students to a variety of ways of looking at the social realities and issues that affect police work. The fourth year allows students to apply this understanding in an operational setting.

The program has been designed to produce the finest recruits possible for the police services that have entered into partnership with the program. It also enables serving officers to obtain university degrees and pursue graduate studies. The latter is facilitated through a close partnership with the Canadian Institute for Peace, Justice and Security, and is also located at the University of Regina. The Police Studies Program is one of the most popular and rapidly growing programs at the University of Regina. This is a reflection of both the increasing professionalism of police work and the University of Regina's commitment to social justice.
