The unit explores research methods from a critical perspective, using a combination of evidence from Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. On successful completion of this unit, students will have acquired the skills to conceptualise and operationalise a research topic, and design a research proposal to investigate a range of criminological issues. The unit is also the ‘capstone’ for students completing a Criminology major sequence or Bachelor degree.
