The BMCC Criminal Justice Program has approximately 2,500 students majoring in the discipline. Criminal justice majors are required to complete the course, Criminal Justice and the Urban Community, CRJ 204, to earn the Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree. Historically, the CRJ Program offered on average seven (7) sections designated as OER/Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC). Approximately 27 sections of CRJ 204 are offered, annually (Spring-15, Summer-3, Fall-9). On average, 400 students enroll in these sections each semester and more than 800 students per academic year. CRJ 204 students apply the culmination of their learning, knowledge, and skills from their social science courses by critically analyzing complex, yet culturally relevant, social issues and conduct an original research study. To note, the interactive lessons inclusive of the proposed project are appropriate for implementation in other CRJ and social science courses.
