| Unit Description
This unit provides students with an opportunity to pursue independent advanced study on a topic of their interest in criminology. The unit is an ideal preparation for honours, but is open to all students who meet the unit pre-requisites. The objectives are threefold. The first is to provide students with an opportunity to develop their skills in working independently; the second is to develop skills in organising, researching and writing to enable students to articulate a researchable problem in criminology; third is to provide students with an opportunity to explore and develop a problem or issue in criminology that is of interest to them. Enrolment is subject to pre-arranged supervisory consent from an academic staff member and approval by the unit coordinator.
