Working as a forensic psychologist requires mental stability and strength. Aspects of this profession can range from consulting with attorneys regarding the interpretation of evidence to investigating claims of abuse. Forensic psychologists may work as part of a law enforcement agency or in a correctional facility. They may also act as expert witnesses in family, civil, or criminal court. Forensic psychology schools in Minnesota provide training in the legal and scientific sides of this career. Classes include psychology and the legal system, ethics in forensic psychology, criminal psychology, victim psychology, evaluation of offenders, and psychological assessment. A minimum of a master’s degree is strongly preferred.
