Through a 17-semester-hour combination of courses in psychology and criminal justice, students learn about psychological disorders, personality types and the various specialties within forensic psychology. Students also gain an understanding of the criminal justice system and the science of criminology, one of the key areas where forensic psychologists make their contributions.
