Program Information

The Victimology Ontario College Graduate Certificate program provides professionals with specialized knowledge and skills in Victimology and in the provision of victim services.

Students develop an understanding of victims’ rights, sudden and traumatic loss, victim populations, crime and its effects on victims in the criminal justice system. History and theories of victimization are explored, with an applied victim centered focus. A practicum experience in victim services provides students with the opportunity to collaborate with victim service agencies in the planning, delivery and evaluation of victim services and advocacy. Specific course emphasis is given to issues such as childhood physical and sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault.
