The Master of Science in Forensic Psychology offered by the University of North Dakota Grand Forks requires 30 credit-hours. Almost two-thirds of the classes are core courses, with 2-3 elective courses, and a thesis or independent study. Interestingly, there is no comprehensive examination. Students, however, get to work with faculty members on their research projects, as well as come up with their own studies.
Additionally, fieldwork opportunities are available through this program. UND provides incredible classes such as Psychology and Law, Victimology, Seminar in Juvenile Justice, and Advanced Social Psychology. These all lead to a deeper understanding of mental health and its relationship to law.
