RONALD CRAIG: I'm Dr. Ron Craig. I'm the program director for the bachelor's in criminal justice with Walden University. I completed my doctoral study with Michigan State University in 2004 with a doctorate in criminal justice. My research areas include African-American serial homicide, serial killers, media and crime, and hip-hop and crime.
My passion continues to grow is to teach and to remain a student myself and to continue to expand upon the wealth of knowledge that exists in our field. The biggest opportunity for me has been to encourage students to continue their education at the master's degree level. And my own experiences speak to-- because I was not designated as a scholar early on in life, my own experience speaks to the opportunity that it can be done. Simple as that.
