    Program at a glance:

    Lethbridge College has a reputable Justice Studies program that allowed for prior learning assessments relevant to my work experience. I got a lot of support and assistance from professors and staff. The chair of the program was extremely supportive and never too busy to answer my questions. The courses were relevant to a career in corrections and students learn critical thinking skills rather than just theory.
