  • I wonder what would be the top choices/ universities to study forensic psychology.
    Any ideas?

  • simon fraser university, UBC British Columbia

  • why not?

  • @pugilemoltobene ohhh does it really suck??? i thought it would be awesome

  • What type of law should we study in this forensics psychologist?

  • Iv been looking at alot of Criminal minds lately does that count as Forensics Psychology or is it just Criminal psychology or are they the same thing? Lol. Im a 9th grader and know that i want a career in Psychology but pin pointing it to what job i want in the are is a little difficult but the stuff they do in Criminal Minds looks like it up my alley.

  • @TheDrizzleTV how about Forensic Psychology: Child Protection concentration? 🙂

  • @dboe9002 Criminal Minds is more focused on criminal profiling, and that is a special field. Most forensic psychologists do not become criminal profilers as that field is for people with experience with law enforcement, like detectives and police officers. A more fair representation of a forensic psychologist is Dr. Huang from the show Law & Order SVU. Look up the video, "SVU: Dr. George Huang." Huang does what Forensic Psychologist would do, appear in court and provide their expertise.

  • @rohgenextfan or also Dr. Lance Sweets for the show Bones

  • Horrible!
