The Franklin Pierce Difference

The Forensic Psychology minor program prepares students to understand the many ways psychology plays a part in the American justice system for criminals, victims, juries, witnesses and judges, assessment and profiling, family and workplace law, and the effectiveness of punishment and social advocacy. Forensic psychology is the study and application of psychological principles to criminal investigation and the law. A relatively new specialization area, this field has seen tremendous growth in recent years.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for psychologists are expected to grow “faster than average” between 2010 and 2020.
