Are you interested in an alternative way of responding to harm and wrongdoing?
The advanced certificate in restorative justice teaches ways of responding to harm and wrong-doing that focus on healing and the restoration (or establishment) of "right relationship".
The program begins with a theoretical study of restorative justice (PEAC 203), which leads to a more directed independent reading course (PEAC 301) that is related to the learner’s area of expertise. The third course of the certificate is a practice course (PEAC 303), where the learner is expected to demonstrate an enactment of the tenets of restorative justice in a meaningful and relevant community setting. The fourth and final course of the certificate (PEAC 305) is a week-long, intensive, hands-on skills course.
Our part-time restorative justice certificate lets you enhance your existing expertise with practical peace and justice skills you can apply to any work, relationship or community setting. You’ll get a mixture of classroom learning, independent study and community-based learning in our program. You’ll especially like this program if you’ve already completed our peace studies program and want to add a practice-based component to your studies.
Restorative justice is particularly valuable for students wanting to pursue further study in women’s studies, criminology, sociology, psychology, Indigenous studies, or peace and conflict studies; and for those seeking work in teaching, social work, child and youth work, court support, police training, counselling, or law.
