What colleges offer Criminology/Forensic Psychology?

Hi! I'm currently in my first year of college, majoring in BA Psychology. I'm genuinely passionate about my course, but more so on Forensic/Criminal Psychology. However my college doesn't offer this specific class, only BA Psychology as a general course. So for my graduate studies, I want to focus more on Forensic Psychology. I want to ask on what colleges offer Criminology/Forensic Psychology courses in the U.S? since I'm planning on getting a professional license there in the future.

My alma mater Sam Houston State University (SHSU) is famous for it's Criminal Just program.
It's a very affordable school located in Huntsville, Texas.
All I know about SHSU's psychology program is, when I took intro to psychology in 2002, the professor was a grad student.
He came to SHSU after completing his Masters at Southern California State University just for SHSU's criminal psychology program.
A lot changes in 20 years, so I highly recommend checking out this school, it just might be what you're looking for:

Thank you very much! I definitely look into it. Sophia Almira T.

I know about a school for professional psychology in the U.S. It offers several undergraduate and graduate programs, including some in Forensic Psychology. There are campuses in California, Chicago, and Washington D.C., and also online. There are masters programs, doctoral programs, certificate programs. Some of them prepare students for becoming licensed, which can be important for some jobs.

Hi Sophia,

I can't answer your question directly. However, I can recommend a book written by someone who began his career studying criminology at Pfeiffer University in Meisenheimer, NC then became a police officer. Subsequently, he joined the Marines and then earned a Ph.D. in Forensics. He is a professor now and wrote this book designed for college students:
