It reinforces, applies, and extends previous coursework and key concepts. Students will examine select contemporary empirical and theoretical questions or problems in criminal justice and criminology, with an emphasis on data literacy, in order to propose policy or theoretical solutions. They will demonstrate the ability to integrate information and subject mastery through a combination of written and oral communication and research. This is a writing intensive course where all students produce at least 15 pages of total writing during the semester that includes one substantive paper. Course content will vary by instructor.
