School of Human Services and Community Safety

There are so many careers that can let you make a positive difference – to children, youth, individuals with disabilities, victims of crime, your community and your province. The 18 programs in our School of Human Services and Community Safety will prepare you for many of them. Wherever you’re heading – correctional work, security, education, funeral services, beauty culture – Saskatchewan Polytechnic can provide what you need to make your mark.

Launch your career in two years or less. Through input from industry, we ensure our curriculum is timely and relevant. We pack a lot of punch into our programs, which range from shorter, applied certificate programs to more comprehensive diploma programs.

Small classes = enhanced learning. You’ll enjoy the polytechnic advantage of small class sizes. Instructors who know you by name are easier to approach.

Upgradable. If you’re a grad of the Aboriginal Police Preparation or Correctional Studies program, you can transfer your credits into the University of Regina’s degree programs in Justice or Police Studies. Educational Assistant and Early Childhood Education grads can ladder into the University of Regina's Bachelor of Education degree program in Elementary Education. Students from the Youth Care Worker program can transfer credit to Athabasca University’s Bachelor of Professional Arts, Human Service Major.
