La asignatura de Métodos de investigación CCSS, forma parte de una estructura que articula en cuatro cursos las distintas materias necesarias para dotar a los alumnos de los conocimientos teóricos y prácticos necesarios, en metodología y técnicas de investigación social, aplicadas a los procesos y hechos criminológicos. Estas materias se engarzan de forma programada para ofrecer un incremento paulatino en los conocimientos de los alumnos. Así la asignatura de Métodos de investigación CCSS, introduce y a la vez completa los conocimientos relativos a la investigación criminológica, de las asignaturas con las que se encuentra directamente relacionada. Éstas como son Introducción a la Sociología (1º Curso), Introducción a la Estadística (1º Curso), Técnicas de investigación cuantitativas y cualitativas (2º Curso) y Sociología de la desviación (3º Curso), dotan a alumno de una visión general de recursos teóricos y metodológicos, para el análisis de los procesos criminológicos, desde la perspectiva sociológica.
