There are many reasons to invest in furthering your education, including the promise of personal and career fulfillment. However, there are also other reasons that compel people to return to school; a need for a life change and job fulfillment have become key factors in the decision-making process.

“Understanding the needs of today’s students, we provide opportunities for full and part-time students to reach their academic and career goals. Our online learning options are just one way students can study from virtually anywhere at any time, which helps students reach their goals while living their busy lives,” explains Derek Stockley, Dean of the School of Social and Community Services.

As a graduate of the Police Foundations Diploma program, Kevin Gonneau credits his career success to the learning experience and practical education he received at Humber. With over 200 part-time courses, Humber’s School of Social and Community Services offers critical learning experiences for the real world.

Many programs offer the flexibility of advanced standing from a diploma to a related degree program, or within degree programs through common platforms. This option gives you time to decide on your career while you are learning. The new Bachelor of Community Development degree is part of a common platform offering pathways to careers in the community services and criminal justice fields. Two common semesters between the Community Development and Criminal Justice Degree programs give students the chance to develop a broader understanding of courses, with flexibility to move between degree options before year two.

Humber’s School of Social and Community Services is located in the west of Toronto. It offers flexible learning, small class sizes, and state-of-the-art facilities combined with industry experienced professors who help students graduate with a range of practical, problem-solving, and communication skills.
