PSY-347 Forensic Psychology

Forensic Psychology covers the five major topics in forensic psychology as well as their integration into the criminal justice system: police psychology, criminal psychology, investigative psychology, correctional psychology, and legal (courtroom) psychology. The primary focus is on criminal and investigative psychology, examining theories of criminal behavior and types of offenders. The juvenile justice system is also examined. Forensic Psychology illuminates the role of psychology from the identification and apprehension of suspects through the court system and the process of rehabilitating inmates and reintegrating them into society. Along the way, the course calls attention to the complex ethical issues relative to this field.
