My project was a qualitative research on those who have chosen to desist from heroin. I wanted to see if their decision to quit heroin was in relation to informal social attachments such as employment and children.
The Applied Behavioral Science program limits enrollment to small cohorts that allow students to get to know each other and to work closely with faculty. Core classes meet in the evenings and there are elective offerings that meet on weekends to accommodate working adults.
The Applied Behavioral Science program develops students’ reasoning and methodological skills and knowledge of social science theory and current scholarship in deviance, criminology and criminal justice. The program is useful to those who work or intend to work in police, probation, judicial and related fields. The program can also serve as an introduction to graduate education for those wishing to pursue doctoral degrees in criminology, criminal justice, sociology, corrections and related fields.
