The field placement element is an important component of the second semester of the Victimology graduate certificate program. Victimology students complete 112 hours of field placement. Field placements provide students with direct supervised experience in the field while they are still engaged in academic studies.
Students will work with the Field Placement Officer to secure their field placement position. Before confirming field placement, students are required to check with their Field Placement Officer to ensure it meets the requirements for field placement and that they have the necessary paperwork submitted before commencing.
Field Placement Documentation
In order to maintain confidentiality and security, the program utilizes an independent provider, Verified by Synergy Gateway for field placement documentation collection and validation. This process is the Electronic Student Permit Checking (ESPC). There is a cost associated with this external agency of $49.95. Please refer to the Victimology ESPC Information Package for details.
