This unit examines issues concerning designing criminological research, including research ethics, methodology and data collection, theoretical approaches to research, reviewing existing literature, presenting research findings and the politics of criminological research. 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.
