  • Overview

    Assessment: report (2500 words) [70%], portfolio of methods skills (1000 words) [30%]
    This module aims to build on the generic first year module in research methods and provide detailed insight into how and why criminological research is conducted. A clear understanding of the different methods used in criminological research, ethical issues raised by undertaking research on sensitive subjects, and an understanding of the application or research and research skills in the real world will all be considered. The module therefore provides the opportunity for students to devise, plan, conduct, analyse, write up and critically evaluate their own research, as well as existing research.
