Student Research Project

Module code: CR3038

Within this module you'll have the opportunity to independently design a research project on an area of criminology of your own choosing. You'll be supported by a dedicated supervisor, but you will be able to tailor your research project depending on your own interests and preferences. You will be guided as to how to complete your research, and you'll have the opportunity to undertake an empirical or library-based piece of research based on your interests and preferences.
