O que eu aprenderei?

The Forensic Psychology B.A. program at Florida Tech is designed for students who want to learn how psychological theory and research are used in the criminal justice system and related fields. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of human behavior, including criminality, as well as important skills in data analysis, writing and research.

Whether you want to become a law enforcement officer, leader in the field of criminal justice or a crime scene analyst, a forensic psychology degree from Florida Tech develops a strong background in psychology with experience in criminology and statistics.

Gain Practical Experience

Our forensic psychology program has low student-to-faculty ratios to encourage close collaboration and mentorship among students and faculty, along with individual creativity and leadership.

Students seeking a forensic psychology degree develop skills in crime analysis, understand crime prevention and learn what it means to be a community liaison working among legal, law enforcement and social services agencies. Forensic psychology students have the opportunity to support an applied research project with the FBI reviewing and coding case files.

As a senior, students engage in a scholarly inquiry project, completing an intensive field internship experience that includes a substantial research study.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, forensic psychology degree majors build leadership experience through internships and participation in academic organizations like Psi Chi (psychology honor society), the Forensic Psychology Association, student government and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers that have recruited Florida Tech students for internships and careers include the Brevard Public Defender, Naval Criminal Investigative Services, FBI Behavioral Services, Melbourne Police Department, Devereux and the Brevard County Sheriff's Department.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their forensic psychology degree, many forensic psychology majors go to graduate studies in forensic science, criminology and law.
