The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice (DCCJ) offers a Ph.D. in International Crime and Justice (ICJ). Considered to be the first and only program in international crime and justice in the United States, the curriculum offers a rigorous set of courses to equip students to produce original research that generates insights into criminology issues and their international nexus. The courses in the curriculum focus on providing students with an extensive education in theory, research methods, and statistics. Alumni of the program have careers in an academic setting as faculty continuing their research and teaching.
The DCCJ is housed under the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs. The Green School is a full member of the prestigious Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), making it the only university in Florida and one of just 40 universities globally to hold this distinction, along with Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and the University of Toronto. Membership in APSIA is comprised of the foremost graduate schools of international affairs, whose stated aim is to enhance global affairs education and promote international understanding. FIU's Ph.D. program in International Crime and Justice is the first of its kind and the first APSIA-affiliated doctoral program in criminology and criminal justice.
