Did you know that, in addition to teaching, CJS faculty members conduct research in their areas of expertise? Students who are interested in research or learning about specific areas of CJS should take advantage of opportunities to help faculty with their research projects. Below are some current opportunities, but keep checking back for more!
Dr. Dawn Beichner has two ongoing research projects examining incarcerated women in jail and prison and their return home to their children and families. Undergraduate and graduate student research assistants are needed for the following tasks:
Research assistants on the project are eligible to receive academic credit for CJS 287 (undergraduate) or CJS 400 (graduate) – Independent Study. For more information, contact Dr. Beichner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
