Forensic psychology involves the intersection of psychology and law. Over two years of the Master of Psychology (Forensic), you will study courses that cover psychological assessment, intervention in and applications of forensic psychology, professional and ethical practice, and law for psychologists. This program is primarily taught by the School of Psychology, with input from the School of Law.
In addition to the coursework you will complete a research thesis, in the form of a scholarly journal article, on a topic relevant to forensic psychology. After completing a further two years of full-time equivalent supervised practice, graduates of the Master program are eligible to apply for full membership and endorsement as a Forensic Psychologist.
