Choose three topics (problems) of your personal interest related to criminal justice. Each topic should include a specific research question.
A sample posting might read, "The practice of police profiling of minority motorists is a problem area within criminal justice because it calls into question the principle of equal justice under the law. My research will analyze US census data for the city of Anytown, studying the question, how do the race, age, gender, and years of an officer's experience influence his or her perception of a motorist's behavior and the motorist's perception of his or her interaction with the police? I will also use a convenience survey to test perceptions of motorists and traffic enforcement officers in Anytown regarding racial profiling."
- Describe each topic.
- Explain the intended approach toward each research question for each topic.
