Is it okay to select forensic psychology as a career option, if you are from humanities background?

So, I am from India and am interested in psychology so I chose humanities.. however, alot of people in my surrounding are asking me not to continue psychology as it is kind of a dead career option since not much jobs are available and it will be hard to fend myself later.. So what should I do.. I don't understand.. though i like it and would like to continue my opinion of going through with it but then the opinions of other people are also justifiable so I don't know what to do.... (I want to go for forensic psychology specifically..)

What United States college would be recommended for a career in forensic psychology ?

Forensic psychology has been my dream career for years, my only issue is finding a good university to apply to once I graduate. I've done some looking, but I'd like a professional recommendation to help with my decision. Many colleges I've seen only offer psychology, without forensic courses or classes.
