Forensic Psychology Minor

Improve Your Community and Future

If you’re pursuing a criminal justice or related degree from Post University, a forensic psychology minor is a great option to gain additional knowledge and skills that are relevant to your studies. With this minor, you can prepare for careers in law enforcement, forensic science, legal studies, criminal justice and human services. Whereas clinical psychologists help individuals, you will help the legal system by evaluating those involved in crimes.

Program Highlights
The forensic psychology minor focuses on the interdisciplinary relationship between psychology and the law. You will be exposed to topics such as the roles and responsibilities of forensic psychologists, insanity and competency, sexual offending, domestic violence, child abuse, criminal behavior, and the death penalty. For a total of 15 credit hours, your forensic psychology minor courses include:

  • Fundamentals of Psychology II
  • Forensic Psychology
  • Research Methodology for the Social Sciences
  • Special Topics in Forensics Psychology
  • Forensic Psychology Elective

Unlike other forensic psychology programs, ours is flexible to fit your needs and schedule, with class options available at our Connecticut campus and online.

As soon as you enroll at Post University, you will be assigned a personal academic advisor. They will help you plan your path from college to career. Few forensic psychology schools offer this same level of one-on-one attention, in addition to a practical learning environment led by experienced faculty.

Contribute to the betterment of society and your career skills. Add a forensic psychology minor to our undergraduate degree programs in sociology, child studies, human services, business administration or management. Contact our admissions representatives today to learn more.
