Hi Vanessa,


When you are choosing forensic psychology schools, you have to make sure that you are choosing a high quality school. If you choose a school with a bad reputation or one that does not have accreditation, then you are wasting your time and your money. You will find that it is impossible to get into a doctorate program without the right schooling behind you.
The first thing that you will do is find forensic psychology schools that are able to offer courses in criminology and psychology so that you can get your bachelor’s degree. You can go through the forensic psychology schools and then find employment after you have your bachelor’s degree, but you will still not be a forensic psychologist. This means that you might be able to find employment in the general field, but it is not going to be as a psychologist. You will then want to pursue your master’s degree and eventually a doctorate. This will mean that you have to go through a number of years of schooling, but that is what you need to do if you are going to become a top-notch criminal psychologist.


Before you enroll in a forensic psychology school, you should make sure that you really want to follow this career path. It is demanding mentally, physically, and sometimes emotionally. When you work in forensics, you will likely face some very long hours that can drain your body and your mind. You also have to consider that you are often going to be working directly with criminals or you will see their handiwork and have to help track them down, as many profilers do. This can take quite a toll on a person emotionally.


The Forensic Panel offers several internships, available to talented and committed students from a range of disciplines. Interns work alongside and interact with professional staff at The Forensic Panel, and are trained and closely supervised to develop their professional and academic aptitudes. Go to:
