This course introduces students to the practice, theory and philosophy of social science research, with a special focus on criminal justice. It not only broadens students' knowledge of the ethical issues associated with research, but also introduces them to a variety of research techniques such as surveys, field research and experimental designs. Research Methods will lay the foundation for students to become informed "consumers" of research, as well as "producers" of this information.
