    thanks for the great blogs on here! I live in houston texas and graduated with a BS in CJ from the university of houston downtown and plan on attending at uhd again for my masters and want to do a phd at SHSU. My question is will i suffer from getting my BS and masters from a low tier school like uhd? i wish to teach at the univ. level and want to know if the phd from SHSU will be good enough. thanks for your time!

      I don’t know how much weight the University of Houston has in your state, but based on a cursory look-up, I don’t think it’s as bad as you may worry it is.

      I feel that as long as you get very good marks, going to one of the best Criminology schools, like Sam Houston State University (SHSU), should be a possibility.

      In my opinion, SHSU is a good school, but not great.

      As for UHD and teaching with a PhD from SHSU, I think you have a decent shot, but, like all things in life, we strive to look for the best — as do the colleges and universities when they hire instructors and professors. So keep that in mind.

        thanks for your response, I wish i had the funds or ability to travel out of state to a higher tier school, but i do not. So i guess i am kind of stuck with SHSU as my best bet in the state (and its only an hour away from Houston). I guess its one of those things i cant really help, but i appreciate at least the fact that i have a decent CJ school around! thanks again for the blog, you do great things for a lot of people! Even those 16 year olds who want to get a degree in FBI SWAT ha!
