CRJ 526 - Research Methods in Criminal Justice I

3 credit hours
This course will expose the graduate student to the more common techniques and concepts used in criminal justice research and evaluation as these are applied to policy, procedures, practices, and programs. With the aim of creating an informed consumer of such information, the student will have the opportunity to practice the application of empirical findings to agency policies, procedures, practices, and programs as he or she is exposed to the principles and techniques of program evaluation and research. Such an understanding is critical for both the producer and consumer of data in the criminal justice system in order to critically evaluate new knowledge as it is generated and presented by others as well as themselves.
