LONG BEACH, Miss. -- People looking to advance their careers in either criminal justice or political science will have a day reserved just for them on the Gulf Coast campus of The University of Southern Mississippi.

Southern Miss' Criminal Justice and Political Science Day is set for 1 to 5 p.m., July 20, at the Advanced Education Center Rotunda in Long Beach. During the event, faculty and staff from the university's criminal justice and political science departments will offer advisement, registration and tours of the program facilities.

Dr. Thomas Payne, acting chair of the Department of Criminal Justice, will make an important announcement about the expansion of the criminal justice program at a 1:30 p.m. press conference that day.

Others expected to attend Criminal Justice and Political Science Day include George Phillips, director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Harrison County Sheriff George Payne, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd and Hancock County Sheriff Steve Garber. The Harrison County Sheriff's Department K-9 Unit will conduct demonstrations of their search techniques for bomb and narcotic detection from 1-3 p.m., and refreshments for visitors will be provided throughout the afternoon.

The criminal justice and political science departments at Southern Miss Gulf Coast offer flexible and interdisciplinary curricula leading to bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.
