Summary
    A Guide to Graduate School Success for Criminal Justice, Public Safety, and Administration of Justice Students helps criminal justice undergraduates think through the myriad decisions related to pursuing a graduate or related degree.

    The book begins by encouraging readers to assess their career goals to determine if graduate school is the logical next step, then provides practical advice for selecting a school and a program. It emphasizes the behaviors and attitudes imperative for success and suggests students treat every interaction like an interview or training opportunity. The text includes practical advice for developing key skill sets, including effective information retention, quality notetaking, communicating well through the written word, and more. The book closes by addressing how the choices a student makes in their personal or professional life during graduate school and beyond can influence their chosen career path, either positively or negatively.

    A Guide to Graduate School Success for Criminal Justice, Public Safety, and Administration of Justice Students is an ideal resource for any undergraduate student interested in pursuing a graduate or related degree.
