|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is designed to provide students with hand-on research experience in the context of the everyday operations of a criminal justice or community-based agency. The internship takes place over two semesters and constitutes a structured and supervised student research consultancy rather than work experience. It provides students with the opportunity to employ formal research skills such as reviewing literature, collecting and analysing data and writing reports. It also enables students to: appreciate the practical applications of criminological theory; explore the criminological significance of social categories (such as gender or ethnicity, enhance their skills of listening, observation, and cooperation; and form relevant professional contacts.
|Assessment:||An essay of 3000 words (25% ) (due end of first semester of study) and an agency report of 5000 words (70%) (due end of second semester). A 15-minute oral presentation will constitute 5% of the assessment (during the second semester of study).|
