Forensic psychologists work at the intersection between psychology and law. Becker College’s bachelor’s degree in psychology with a focus in forensic psychology challenges students to apply their research skills, psychological knowledge and critical thinking abilities to a variety of issues facing the legal system.
Students study subjects such as:
- How psychologists serve as expert witnesses and advisors in courts
- Motives and patterns of criminal behavior
- Treatment, rehabilitation and assessments used in corrections and in private practice
