Making Lasting Connections

In the 20 years since its inception in 1997, our doctoral alums have joined university faculties, government agencies, and private organizations. We are proud of the work they are doing to advance the field of criminology and criminal justice.

We know the importance of having the right network of colleagues, mentors, and friends. For our former students you can connect with our Doctoral Program Alumni.
