Forensic Psychology

The Forensic Psychology Minor at MMC provides students with the fundamental tools, enabling them to understand and critically assess important questions in regards to law and mental issues.

This minor gives students the opportunity to explore professional interests in many different fields, including forensic psychology, psychiatry, criminology, law, policing and corrections, police administration, FBI, research, education, and journalism. While most students major in psychology, students may also major in sociology or political science to complete the Forensic Psychology Minor.
