The Association of Doctoral Programs in Criminology and Criminal Justice is comprised of universities and colleges offering the doctorate in criminal justice, criminology, and related areas of study. Membership is by invitation, and is open to any program that either currently offers the doctorate or is in some stage of developing such a program. The members meet annually (in conjunction with the meetings of the American Society of Criminology), conduct an annual survey of doctoral program activities, and work to advance the interests of advanced study of crime and justice.

The purpose of this website is to assist potential students and faculty who wish to investigate the various programs offering crime and justice related doctoral degrees.

This site provides news of interest about activities of the members and the association and links to each of the members' program website, providing more detailed information about members' programs.
