Working in forensic psychology can be a very stressful job, but also a fascinating one. It can demand maturity and sensitivity, especially when dealing with victims of a crime. Forensic psychologists apply the science of psychology to the criminal justice system. They can counsel victims, evaluate mental competency, and participate in offender treatment programs at correctional facilities. Forensic psychology schools in Texas offer master’s degree programs. Graduate certificates - for students who have already achieved their degree in psychology and wish to specialize in this area - are also awarded. Coursework includes maladaptive behavior, criminal behavior psychology, evaluating offenders, victim psychology, and psychology and the law.
