Graduate Programs in Psychology and Law

Our listing of academic programs that offer education and training in psychology and law is divided into three degree categories: clinical doctoral programs, nonclinical PhD programs and masters programs

If you are interested in learning more about graduate programs, please review the links to the degree programs provided on this web site, and also review the Guide to Graduate Programs in Legal and Forensic Psychology (PDF, 677KB), developed by members of the AP-LS Teaching, Training, and Careers Committee (TTC). We hope this new format will allow students interested in psychology and law programs to more easily access and compare graduate programs. This guide lists current graduate programs in forensic and legal psychology. Programs are listed alphabetically by degree type: doctoral programs (PhD and PsyD), joint programs (PhD/JD, PsyD/JD, JD/MA, PhD/MLS), and masters-level programs. Each program is described using the same categories (program facts, admission criteria, opportunities for research or practica and funding availability) to help prospective students make informed choices about graduate training and education in psychology and law.
