Master's Thesis In Criminal Justice I

This course requires students to design and begin implementing their own research project to be used to satisfy the program's thesis requirement. Under the guidance of a member of the Law and Justice Department faculty who agrees to serve as Thesis Advisor, the student will develop a Research Proposal that will consist of an introduction and Statement of the Problem, a Literature Review, a Data and Methods Section, and a brief summary of the proposed research. The student will defend this Research Proposal in front of the Master's Thesis Committee, and will begin implementing the research after obtaining the Committee's approval.
