In addition to the general psychology mission, the primary goal of this concentration is to introduce students to the field of psychology and law and forensic psychology. These two fields are intimately related; psychology is the study of the human mind and behavior while law is the societal regulation of human behavior.
In addition to the general psychology outcomes students will:
- Identify, define and explain the key terminology, concepts, principles, theories and models from the field of forensic psychology.
- Develop critical reasoning skills through the reading and discussion of research in the field of forensic psychology.
