The Department of Criminal Justice encourages
students to participate as volunteers in research studies.
Participation in research studies serves three major purposes:
- It helps you become acquainted, through personal experience,
with research techniques used to study Criminal Justice topics
discussed in your courses. In addition, it allows you to gain
a better understanding of the theories used to study criminological
and justice related issues.
- It provides both faculty and student researchers with useful
information. This information may be presented at professional
meetings or published in journals and books. This serves to advance

and rehabilitation can be developed.

and undergraduate students to conduct research studies. This
