This subject is designed to provide students with hands-on research experience in the context of the everyday operations of a social or 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 or sociological theory. explore the criminological and sociological 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 (30%) due during the first semester of study, and an agency report of 5000 words, (70%) due end of second semester of study. A 15-minute oral presentation will constitute a hurdle requirement of the assessmen, scheduled during the second semester of study.|
