Interview with Regis Criminology Student Anya Pulai
Regis criminology student, Anya Pulai, answers questions about how her degree program is helping her reach career goals and aspirations - Anya is currently a bail bonds agent and wants to learn more about the behavior patterns and sociological trends of crime. She also talks about standout features in the program and how Regis’ program made her passionate about a career in criminology.
Anya says one of the reasons she chose a criminology degree over a criminal justice degree is because, “I love learning about different theories of why crimes are committed. Criminology offers me those answers.” She also speaks to the coursework and assignments. “I take every assignment as a challenge. Most professors let you pick your topic as long as it is related to the topic of the week.” In her interview, Anya talks about a day in the life of a bails bond agent and what her processes are, and how she enjoys being in class and surrounded by others who have the same passion as her.
