How long did it take you to become a forensic psychologist?

About how many years did it take you to become licensed/have the degrees necessary to become a forensic psychologist? Were you able to join as a forensic psychologist right away, or did you have to join a starter career and work your way up?

Thank you for taking the time to notice and answer my question! I am currently a psychology and criminology major at my university and I want to Master in Forensic Psychology/Criminal Psychology! Does anyone know what is the best route I should take such as internships, jobs, and school? I am currently working on research papers and plan to present it at a future conference. I'm just having a difficult time finding things that can push me to pursue this field. It is a little discouraging!
