FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY

Solve criminal cases. Become a master investigator. Create crime prevention strategies. As a forensic psychologist, you can have a tremendous impact in fighting crime and making a difference in the world. 

Forensic psychology combines law and psychology into a unique field where you will study the psychology behind criminal behavior…and help prevent it. By applying psychological science to legal matters, you can assist judges and juries in determining criminal responsibility and punishment.

You will develop skills in research, investigation and scientific study. Practical exercises will challenge you to wrestle with the ethical and moral dilemmas commonly encountered in the forensic psychology profession and respond from a biblical perspective.
