Forensic Psychology Concentration
Hamline’s forensic psychology concentration—the only program of its kind in Minnesota—provides a multidisciplinary approach to the study of crime, motivations for criminal behavior, and the response and use of psychology in the criminal justice and legal systems. You’ll gain foundational knowledge in criminology, psychology, and legal studies, and tie it all together with an interdisciplinary senior seminar.
Anyone with a major in criminal justice, psychology, or legal studies is eligible to declare the concentration. Since some courses overlap with your major requirements, you can develop an in-demand skill set while still staying on track to graduate.
