This minor is particularly appropriate for students whose area of study relies on knowledge in psychology and criminal justice, including those majoring in criminal justice as well as other social science and human service related fields (e.g., social work). The forensic psychology minor contributes to preparation for graduate study in criminal justice, psychology, and related areas such as addiction studies, counseling, and law.
