A Conversation with Dr. Shuraydi
What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?
“Our program at TAMUC allows students to get a quality education and real university experience while also having the luxury of small class sizes, caring faculty, and a close-knit community. A university education will not only open up new career opportunities, but can also allow students to grow, develop, and evolve.”
What makes you passionate about your discipline?
“I am passionate about Criminology because I love the depth of the field. The use of theory to impact policy and to understand deviant behaviors allows for a well-rounded understanding of the world around us and the dynamic choices people make.”
Tell us about an academic project you are working on or recently completed.
“I am currently coauthoring a set of papers that focus on American Muslims’ interactions with victimization and their views of officers, conducted shortly after the Christchurch, NZ massacre. I am also working on collecting data about suicidal ideation and have studied drug use among Arab Americans.”
