Licensed psychologists play a vital role in the justice system. For example, forensic psychologists perform examinations and assessments of criminal defendants to determine that defendant's mental state at the time of a crime.
The online BS in Psychology with a concentration in Forensic Psychology is a unique program that requires two additional lab courses and advanced statistical training, in comparison to the Forensic Psychology BA degree. This online degree will provide a greater depth of knowledge in the biological and neuroscientific aspects of psychology that are becoming increasingly important both for research and clinical forensic practice. In addition, the advanced statistical training will further prepare students for careers and graduate training involving psychological research, clinical research and legal policy research. Further, this program will provide a solid foundation that can prepare students for the additional graduate-level study required to practice as a forensic psychologist.
