We Make It Real & Relevant With The BCJ Degree In Forensic Psychology
The field of forensic psychology is both dynamic and growing – making it explicitly undefined, yet exciting. TU has become a leader in the field and created a top-level program that was established before the American Psychology Association even identified it as a registered program.
Our program is designed for students who are interested in examining the relationship between psychology and the criminal justice system. In this program, you will develop knowledge and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of offenders, victimology, crisis intervention, counseling, psychopathology, personality assessment and research methods.
You will also study the application of psychological principles to the resolution of problems in the administration of criminal justice, such as jury selection, police stress and rehabilitation program design.
Graduates can begin careers in either a clinical setting where they work directly with offenders and victims, or in a research setting where empirical answers are sought to crucial issues affecting the administration of criminal justice.
