Hello, my name is Michael Capece and I am an Associate Professor of Sociology. Before coming to Valdosta State University I lived in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida area. During my time in Florida, I was in private practice and also taught courses in sociology and criminology at the University of South Florida and St. Leo College.
I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Florida My areas of teaching/practice interest are sociological practice, mental health, substance abuse, and criminology/deviance. I have published in the areas of sociological practice, employee assistance programs, and family sociology. I am currently working with the faculty in Criminology and Law at the University of Florida researching drinking behavior of college students and testing Ronald Akers ’ Social Structure/Social Learning theory of criminal and deviant behavior. I hold counseling licenses in Georgia and Florida and have a private practice in Valdosta.
Over the years I have benefited from the flexibility of my degree in sociology. It prepared me for employment as a clinical practitioner, supervisor, teacher, and applied researcher. I would be happy to discuss the career opportunities that a Masters Degree in Applied Sociology would afford you.
