CRM 220 (ONLINE): Survey of Criminal Justice: Research Paper

This guide will help students taking CRM 220 online with scholarly papers due in modules, 2, 5, and 8, and the research paper due in module 7.


Students will be responsible for submitting a research paper (due in Module 7). Students are allowed to select the topic they would like to write about, but it needs to be part of the criminal justice system and something that was reviewed in class.

Please keep this in mind when selecting a topic.
