The application of psychology to the civil and criminal judicial process came naturally as court systems, litigators, law enforcement agencies and correctional departments looked to make use of every tool available to promote safer communities and ensure an equitable justice system. What hasn’t come quite as easily is the development of tools and resources for psychology students interested in focusing their careers on psycholegal issues.
As a dedicated resource for aspiring forensic psychologists, ForensicPsychologyEDU.org represents a change in the current paradigm.
As students of psychology with aspirations of working in the field of forensic psychology, we found we had more questions than resources available to answer them. This need for a dedicated resource is what inspired us to create ForensicPsychologyEDU.org
From undergraduate and graduate education options, doctoral programs and postdoctoral internships, to exam preparation, licensing and continuing education requirements, ForensicPsychologyEDU.org provides the information that aspiring and current students of forensic psychology need for everything from finding state-approved degree programs to maintaining state-issued licenses.
From information on key specializations in forensic psychology in civil, criminal and family law, to salary surveys that reflect typical earnings in different parts of the country, ForensicPsychologyEDU.org will also be a vital resource for recent graduates and experienced practitioners.
Whether you are an aspiring student exploring your undergraduate options, a post-doctoral resident preparing for licensure, or a practicing forensic psychologist with years of experience, we encourage you to use ForensicPsychologyEDU.org freely as a source of information dedicated exclusively to the sub-field of forensic psychology.
