PSYC 368 - FIELDWORK IN FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY
An applied study of the field of forensic psychology. This course is designed to expand students' knowledge of forensic psychology, and to provide hands-on experience in a relevant field placement. During the semester, we will examine in class a variety of topics that illustrate the applications of psychological concepts to the practice of the law and the criminal justice system. Students will then have the opportunity to apply their knowledge of theory and research to practice in forensic settings. Placements will be available in such areas as community services to victims, forensic mental health agencies, parole and corrections, and the court system. Due to obligations to community agencies and their clients, admission to fieldwork placements is at the discretion of the psychology faculty. All students must pass a criminal background check as well as a drug screen in order to be placed with an agency and complete this fieldwork course; students who fail either the baackground check or the drug screen will be asked to withdraw from the course. Fulfills Category 7 and fieldwork requirement. Fieldwork Insurance Fee. (Formerly Category 6)
