Forensic Psychology Programs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Forensic psychologists use psychological principles in the legal and criminal justice system to help judges, attorneys, and other legal professionals understand the psychological findings of a particular case. They are usually brought in as an expert witness and will most likely specialize in civil, criminal, or family courts. A master’s degree in forensic psychology will allow a psychology major to specialize in this type of counseling and prepare the student for entry into this field.
