Research in Criminal Justice

Opportunities exist for students to work with individual faculty members on research-related projects. 

In the past, students have helped faculty members study determinants of fear of crime and satisfaction with police, evaluate date rape prevention programs, organize career days, conduct community surveys and complete other projects. Some of these projects have resulted in publications or presentations. Students wishing to work on projects as they become available should express their interest to individual faculty members.
