Forensic Psychology Masters

What is forensic psychology? It is the application of psychology in law and law enforcement. For example, it is used in treating mentally ill offenders, providing expert testimony in court, and also in analyzing a criminal’s mind and intent. So to prepare for this work students need to take criminal justice and civil legal courses as well as psychology courses. And this is what a typical forensic psychology masters program covers.

If you are interested in becoming a forensic psychologist, then you will need a masters degree. This page tells you more about these programs, where to find them, and also associated programs in criminology and justice studies.
