A relatively new subfield of psychology, forensic psychology is a dynamic and mission-driven field related to psychology and the law. Forensic psychologists are tasked with improving the relationships between individuals and the legal system — by assessing, evaluating, and treating offenders and victims.  

Forensic psychologists explore the connection between human behavior and the justice system.

In an effort to showcase this critical field, we developed an informative resource for future forensic psychologists: Making the Case for a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology.

With this guide, we will answer the following questions:

  • What is forensic psychology?
  • How to become a forensic psychologist?
  • What is the difference between forensic psychology and forensic science
  • What is the forensic psychology job outlook?
  • How can NU help me secure one of the many careers in forensic psychology?

Use the form above to unlock the Forensic Psychology Guide. Once you fill out the form, you'll also receive a variety of resources that will help you navigate the graduate school decision process. We can't wait to help you secure a meaningful career in forensic psychology!
