What kind of job would someone who majored in Forensic Psychology look for and what would a normal work week look like?

Asked Interlaken, Canton of Bern, Switzerland

I am interested in majoring in psychology for college, more specifically forensic but I am not sure what that job field would look like and what a normal week would look like. I would really be interested in doing something that involves deciding whether or not a person is clinically insane or fit to stand on trial. I would like to know what kind of things would be done on a day to day basis and if what I am interested in falls under that category. #psychology #forensic-psychology

The types of jobs in forensic psychology can vary. For example, you could work as a case manager, therapist for court-ordered clients or psychological test administrator. You could also work as an expert witness. However, to work in forensic psychology, you need a master's degree. Majoring in psychology is excellent. It will give you the opportunity to learn about forensic psychology in the general context. Forensic psychology is a rewarding field and it is great that you want to pursue a career in this field. From my experience working with court-ordered clients, I conducted individual and group therapy. I also administered psychological tests. Overall, I had a great experience and will continue to work in forensic psychology.
