A career in forensic psychology requires extensive training. Forensic psychologists may counsel victims of a crime, evaluate the mental state of accused criminals, or work in a correctional facility. In family law situations, they may be called upon to judge the competency of witnesses, provide testimony or a second diagnostic opinion, or investigate claims of child abuse. Classes in this field include general psychology, research methods, counseling, psychological assessment, psychology’s history and systems, maladaptive behavior, victim psychology, and criminal behavior. Job growth is expected to be about average, with much competition for new openings.
