Title: Critical Analysis Of Fear Of Crime On College Campuses
Author: Deason, Hannah
Abstract: The purpose of this research study is to examine the perception of fear of crime among undergraduate college students who are enrolled in courses in the Criminology and Criminal Justice Department at the University of Texas at Arlington. Surveys were administered to 160 undergraduate students enrolled in courses in the Criminology and Criminal Justice department at the University of Texas at Arlington. Survey responses of female undergraduate students were then compared male undergraduate students to determine knowledge and perception differences relating to sexual assault. In regards to the survey questionnaire administered to the undergraduate students, there were statistically significant differences in the responses offered by females and males. Overall, both females and males did not respond to feeling completely safe while attending the University of Texas at Arlington. The findings of this research study demonstrate the need for further research to determine how safe college students feel while attending the college of their choice.
