viewed and discussed
during the Live Session(s).
The student proposed and
designed the process for
carrying out research and
developed the procedure
for data collection.
The student should select
either the methods (e.g.,
Quantitative [or
Qualitative, or mixed
methods]) for studying the
distribution and cause of
crimes and explain what
methods may be used (e.g.
survey research, field
research, evaluation
research, and explain how
this Research Project will
assist criminologist in
gathering reliable and
valid data in the field of
criminology.
Qualitative research
