Clinical Forensic Psychology Programs

The American Psychology-Law Society (APLS/APA Division 41) defines forensic psychology as professional practice in “any subdiscipline of psychology (e.g., clinical, developmental, social, cognitive) when applying the scientific, technical, or specialized knowledge of psychology to the law to assist in addressing legal, contractual, and administrative matters.”

Applied Criminology Program

Applied criminology is the use the empirical findings of criminology (prevention, criminal prognosis, sanctioning, informal social-control and the investigation of effects) in legislation and practice. Through the two-year program, students will be supported to achieve competencies necessary to work in management or executive capacities within law enforcement or private security agencies or within victim services. Our master of science degree in applied criminology is designed to enhance the skill set and employability of those already working within or interested in entering this emerging and dynamic field. Possible careers in applied criminology for graduates of our program include private and criminal investigator, criminal profiler, consultant to state and federal agencies, probation officer and much more.
