Graduate school is not just about coursework and classes. Much of what you will learn occurs during conversations with faculty outside the classroom or discussions with your peers. You are strongly encouraged to attend workshops, lectures, symposia, and social events organized by the department, its affiliated centers, and the graduate student organization.
We hope you will become an active member of the Criminology, Law and Society Student Association (CLSSA), which is an active and vital part of our program. The purpose of CLSSA is to connect graduate students in the CLS program with one another, to share research and professional interests, and to provide an organizing body for professional development opportunities.
We can also connect with graduate students throughout the university via the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA). You will find many additional resources and extensive information about graduate student life at Mason via the links below.
