An opportunity to work with a professor in a focused research project related to an issue of criminal justice. The work may be a field study, a study of the literature or both.

The goal of the work is usually a publishable contribution to the literature that will be submitted to a regional or national criminal justice academic or professional group. Open to Juniors and Seniors who have completed the appropriate courses to justify the position. May be repeated for a total of no more than 6 credits. Consent required of the instructor who will supervise the independent study and the Department Chair.
