Forensic Psychology

Forensic psychologists take their extensive knowledge of the field of psychology and use it to work as a critical team member in the criminal justice system.

Forensic psychologists can work in family courts performing child custody evaluations or investigating child abuse claims, or they may work in a civil court setting assessing the competency of a defendant. In other instances, they may be charged with providing therapy services to victims of crime.

Applying scientific knowledge–as well as analyzing evidence and acting as an expert witness – are the primary roles of a forensic psychologist.

There are a variety of degree options available for those who wish to work in the field of forensic psychology.
