The effect of social context on prisoner reentry, corporate crime
“What I enjoy and appreciate the most about the FSU criminology PhD program is being able to work with professors on research projects and publications. I have had the opportunity to join faculty on social ecology and prisoner reentry research projects. I have also been helped and encouraged by professors to develop my own research ideas into potential publications, such as my ongoing collaboration with a professor on a corporate crime paper. When working with faculty, I am constantly challenged and inspired to be a good researcher. It is absolutely a rewarding experience.”

Top doctoral students become partners with faculty in publishing in the field's top journals. Through this partnership, they build the skills necessary for generating compelling ideas for new research, using research methods that provide informative and reliable findings, and writing persuasive papers. These notable accomplishments make them particularly attractive to employers.
