Learn By Doing

Undergraduate students may gain research experience by working with a faculty member on an independent study or through an internship in the community. Past undergraduate projects have included topics in cultural competency assessment, immigrants' adaptation to the American criminal justice system, and the nature of culture among juvenile delinquents.

At the graduate level, the department encourages graduate students to take CRJ 590 Independent Study, CRJ 690, Master's Project, and/or CRJ 710 Research Project, to be actively involved in research before they graduate.
