Masters Programs

In addition to the information provided through the links to each program's website, the members of the AP-LS Teaching, Training, and Careers Committee (TTC) developed a Guide to Graduate Programs in Legal and Forensic Psychology (PDF, 442KB). 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.
